Asian Dub Foundation

British rapcore, dub, dancehall and ragga band

After nearly 20 years of raging against oppression and injustice, it is sometimes easy to forget that this multi-cultural British crew are also one of the most musically inventive, explosively exciting live bands on the planet.

Now, their strongest line up yet combines their trademark fusion of punk rock, electronic beats, reggae, bhangra and hipVhop that has attracted many famous fans, from Primal Scream to Radiohead, Sinead O’Connor to Chuck D, all former touring partners and studio collaborators.

This Is Not A Safe Space

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.

About Jackie Hagan

Jackie Hagan is a working-class queer disabled poet, performer and theater maker and a Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellow. Her work focuses on celebrating the experiences of people left out of the mainstream. Her solo show Some People Have Too Many Legs won the 2015 Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Show and toured nationally to venues including Hull Truck and Bristol Old Vic. Her debut play ​ Cosmic Scallies was commissioned by Graeae and ran at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer 2017.

IGNiTE is supported using public funding by Bristol City Council and by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
