Announcing New Unlimited Commissions

A comedy about life and death, a sound installation exploring homeless culture, a story about the rise and fall of the British Empire and 20,000 helium-filled party balloons feature amongst Unlimited’s most adventurous commissions yet.

Announced this morning at The Chapter in Cardiff, the nine ambitious new commissions – selected from a pool of 162 strong applications – span a wide range of disciplines, created by talented disabled artists from across the UK:

  • Assisted Suicide: The Musical – Liz Carr, England (Theatre)
  • Cherophobia – Noëmi Lakmaier, England (Visual Arts)
  • Cosy – Kaite O’Reilly, Wales (Theatre)
  • Demonstrating the World – Aaron Williamson, England (Visual Arts)
  • The Doorways Project – Bekki Perriman, England (Other)
  • Grandad and the Machine – Jack Dean, England (Literature)
  • Him – Sheila Hill, England (Theatre)
  • TV Classics Part 1 – Cameron Morgan, Scotland (Visual Arts)
  • The Way You Look (At Me) Tonight – Claire Cunningham, Scotland (Dance)

“Selecting work is always hard – selecting work for Unlimited is even harder as the demand for the programme is so high”
Ruth Gould, Chair, Unlimited Selection Panel

“This round of work will be astonishing. The commissions are diverse in every way possible – art form, ambition, take on the world – just showing that disabled artists and disability-led companies truly can’t be categorised into just one box. Watch out!”
Jo Verrent, Senior Producer, Unlimited
