In January 2017, CONTAINED appeared at the Crossing the Line Festival in Roubaix, France. The festival saw three leading European learning disability theatre companies; Mind the Gap, Moomsteatern and Compagnie de l’Oiseau Mouche host three days of performances, workshops, screenings and discussion events for over 1200 attendees.
Following the original tour of CONTAINED in 2015/16, the show underwent a significant period of development to make the show more accessible to French audiences. Bigger and better than ever, the show included updated stories, new video projections created by Denis Darzacq and a whole new level of accessibility thanks to integrated captioning. This new version of CONTAINED will tour the North of England in Spring 2017.
Here are some images from rehearsals of the show at La Condition Publique in Roubaix taken by the show’s Technical Producer Ben Pugh.
