MTG supports new Micro-Commission by artist Maddie Morris

Mind the Gap as one of the members of the Collaborative Touring Network, have partnered with arts commissioning body Unlimited, to commission 8 disabled artists nationally, in association with Touretteshero.

Through these micro commissions, artists based in the towns and cities across the Collaborative Touring network will be supported to develop high-quality, ambitious, original work from across a range of artforms.

The work created will connect to the broad themes and ideas explored in Touretteshero’s new live and digital performance ‘Burnt Out in Biscuit Land’ which tours the network from April-July 2023. Themes of invisibilityisolationjoy, and resistance.

These micro-commissions will result in eight original small scale works that will be premiered in their partner venue as part of the national tour of Burnt Out In Biscuit Land.

At Mind the Gap, we are supporting artist Maddie Morris.

Maddie Morris is an artist who strives to make a difference in the world. Bold, insightful and refreshingly unique, she takes traditional song in new directions to shine a light on contemporary issues, offering new perspectives about the world we live in today.

For this commission, Maddie will be exploring the experiences of queerness and disability, through songwriting and interpretations of traditional song. Using tunes collected in West Yorkshire, as well as participatory workshops and research, Maddie hopes to create a work exploring the complexities of being both disabled/neurodivergent and part of the LGBTQIA community.

You can see Maddie perform before Touretteshero’s ‘Burnt Out in Biscuitland’ at Mind the Gap on 18 and 19 May. Tickets are still available to buy.
