With the support of the Arts Council England, New Theatre Royal and their Resident Artist Jon Adams, DYSPLA present You Will Fail Her, at The New Theatre Royal from Thursday 21st to Saturday 23rd of September. You Will Fail Her will include an immersive theatre performance, panel discussions and debate about Dyslexia, mental health and educational reform. The one-woman performative installation weaves the audience into the tapestry of the protagonist’s life through immersive theatre, moving image and an interactive soundscape. The performance will address topical themes of State and Parental responsibilities, explore the emotional consequences of a failed education system and, in light of the recent cuts to education funding, prove that it is still the most vulnerable students in our society who experience discriminative education.
DYSPLA is an arts organisation producing and developing the work of dyslexic and neurodivergent storymakers who work in film, immersive theatre, installation, and digital art to exhibit and develop new work by neurodivergent artists, both locally and internationally. To keep up to date with their latest projects (including You Will Fail Her) give them a follow on Twitter & Facebook.
“Enter a world of movie projection, giant balloons and the soundscape of your inner voice. Revisit your own childhood and there among the memories, re-live a trauma so unforgivable that even you will feel the guilt of a system that continues to fail its children.”
After each performance Guest Speakers will lead a radical and forward-thinking debate, to explore ways to challenge the issues within Britain’s educational system and to promote how Dyslexic and neurodivergent students can still succeed within a defective system. DYSPLA is currently inviting experts in dyslexia, mental health and educational reform to create a Panel of Guest Speakers capable of challenging the suitability of Britain’s education system. Two confirmed Guest Speakers so far, are Creative Network South and GroOops. If you or your organisation would like to speak on Dyslexia, Mental Health or Educational Reform, please call or email Festival Producer Lennie Varvarides on [email protected] and +44(0)7917157748.
Tickets for You Will Fail Her are only £10 (£6.50 concessions) and available from The New Theatre Royal (box office is 023 9264 9000).
