Not Your Circus Dog & Access All Areas

“So, just what is it that you fuckers want? The cracks, the scars? We are sick of being your circus dogs. Everything you think we can’t do, we can."

Join the Not Your Circus Dog collective in an evening of shameless sexy punk crip cabaret. With luscious lip syncs, sweaty dances and verbatim stories, have your preconceptions rattled as we take you to the edge.

Welcome to our space. You are a guest, and we are not fucking sorry. 

“This is the first time I have seen a piece by artists with learning disabilities that was utterly queer and uncompromising. Like The Divine David at his most provocative… I haven’t been so affected by a performance for f**kin’ years.” Simon Casson, Producer, Duckie 

These four performers are some of the bravest, boldest, most candid and risk-taking on the contemporary London theatre scene.”  Natasha Sutton Williams, Disability Arts Online  

Supported by Arts Council England, The Hale and Access All Areas
