Graeae at Marina Beach, Chennai

In February-March 2018, Graeae will work with La Fura dels Baus, Prakriti Foundation and partners in Chennai to deliver one of the largest outdoor spectacle performances the city has ever seen, led entirely by D/deaf and disabled artists, providing a huge cultural platform for the promotion of disability rights.

We’ll work with up to 100 disabled and non-disabled performers from Chennai and Spanish company La Fura dels Baus, telling a story of disability, climate change and modern India, and using giant puppets, disabled aerial performers 50 metres in the air, and large scale projection to draw in crowds of up to 20,000.

“There are no limitations here, just glorious liberation, as the performers fly across the sky and the world explodes all around them”

The Guardian,
on Prometheus Awakes (2012)
