Helena Jackson is the Artistic Director at Sleepless Theatre Company, an inclusive company that has committed to always having at least 50% of its performers and creatives identify as D/deaf, disabled or neurodiverse and that is currently developing its interaction with access technologies for audiences. At the moment Sleepless Theatre have programmed with Alex Wood’s debut play, Nine Foot Nine at the Bunker Theatre as part of their Breaking Out season in June before heading up to Assembly for the entirety of the Edinburgh Fringe. Helena shares with us the inspiration behind Nine Foot Nine, a sci-fi feminist piece shortlisted for the 2018 LET Award as well as having a showcase at the Royal Court earlier this year, the current climate of inclusive and accessible theatre, and reminds people that disability is an important part of intersectional feminism.

☆☆☆☆ @arcolatheatre #Greek #Grimeborn is a 75-minute mash-up of rough, violent energy and impressively bold performances that merge the old with the new. The work stands as a remarkable piece of operatic history. Hold tight, you’re in for a rude ride.https://t.co/ZuSY3DOmI0 pic.twitter.com/sTWWtyG48S— Trendfem.com🌸🎶 (@MaryGNguyen) August 15, 2018
