Everyone Knows Something

Margaret Ames, Edward Wadsworth

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


This practice as research output was made with participants in Cyrff Ystwyth and in particular company member Edward Wadsworth. The work responded to his desire to create a live performance that drew on his experience of two years in Further Education. The output examined how people with learning disabilities might experience the education system. The work considered how people are categorised and assessed and in particular how people with disabilities are assessed as capable or otherwise. Specific notions of skill, inability, disability and responses to these categories were examined through the techniques of devising public performance. Theatrical techniques and the appearance of the individuals in public through these techniques formed the methodological ground. The issues raised within the process and final outcome were embedded within the dramaturgical form and made available to audiences via performance.
