The biennial festival Unlimited is back at the Southbank Centre this September, once again celebrating the brilliant talent and creativity of disabled artists. The five-day multi-artform programme spans events, installations, performances and music, and platforms artists who identify as being disabled, D/deaf, neurodivergent and those experiencing chronic illness or mental health conditions. This year, the festival is prioritising accessibility like never before, with over 50% of the programme available for free and at-home digital experiences available for 11 events. Among the various artworks, which explore themes relating to climate change, identity, and marginalised backgrounds will be a socially distanced cabaret, the Touretteshero’s Masked Ball, curated by Jess Thom, which embraces facemasks artistically and practically to protect the most vulnerable; Sonny Nwachukwu’s Saturn Returns, a performance that explores the subconsciousness of relationships, drawing on Black culture; and free film screenings including The Empire’s Old Clothes, On Black Pain and Unpredictable Bodies. There’s plenty more to get involved in, so keep an eye on what’s on.
