This Is Not A Safe Space
Award winning writer and comedian Jackie Hagan’s solo show, presented as part of IGNiTE
Benefit cuts are hitting disabled people the hardest. Half of people in poverty are disabled or live with a disabled person. The future looks grim, so how can we get people to sit up, listen and care and not keel over with empathy-fatigue?

Award-winning poet and theatre maker Jackie Hagan’s way has been to make a new solo show that features the real voices of proper skint disabled people she knows. Jackie has conducted interviews with people from all over the country living on the fringes and the spaces in between. These are not sob stories – they are well rounded lives full of the spiky humour and the complicated weirdness of being human. Jackie weaves these narratives together with poetry and anecdotes, celebrating the weird, the wonky, the unruly, and the resilient.

Expect audience interaction, DIY puppetry, poetic comedy, comedic poetry, and one underclass amputee steering the show.

This is Not A Safe Space is commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England. Supported with funding from BlueSCI Wellbeing, Contact and Full Circle Arts. Produced by Big Feast.

This performance is BSL interpreted

There will be a post show talk back after the performance.

Sister Nancy & Legal Shot Sound

The Queen of Dancehall comes to Bristol for a very special performance with Legal Shot Sound
BAM!BAM!BAM! Presents

The Living Legend Sister Nancy aka The Queen of Dancehall comes to Bristol for a very special performance with Legal Shot Sound.

In the words of her iconic 1982 single “Bam Bam,” Sister Nancy is “one inna three million,” an artist whose talents truly “come from creation.”

Regarded as the first female star in the male-dominated world of Jamaican dancehall, Sister Nancy continues to blaze new trails 35 years after the release of her first and only album. Recently recognized by Pitchfork as The Best Dancehall Song of All-Time, “Bam Bam” has been sampled, quoted and referenced in tracks by Lauryn Hill, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West and most recently Jay Z

There is no wrong time to play ‘Bam Bam.’ Every summer belongs to ‘Bam Bam.’ … A perfect song.” — The New Yorker

SINAI SOUND
With full crew

For those who don’t know, Chef (founder of Sinai Sound System) served his apprenticeship with Iration Steppas, travelling the country and learning the ropes of soundsystem. He’s since gone on to form his own sound with a dedicated team and over the past few years Sinai has become one of the main players at festivals and dances throughout the country and beyond, crossing genres and always guaranteeing the highest quality. They’ve just got back from powering the Subdub arena at Outlook Festival and are literally the talk of the scene right now. We feel it’s the ideal time for them to step up and face-to-face with their teacher in the Teachings arena! Iration Steppas need little introduction, favourites at TID they hail from Leeds and are the 20 year strong Subdub residents. They’ve been mashing up dances since 1990 with their trademark ‘year 3000’ style of dubs and are without doubt one of the best roots sounds in the world.

‘Caution: excessive sound levels’ – earplugs are available at the bar for 50p
