ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Raspberry Ripple is a disability-led theatre company.
‘The barriers put in place by a world designed for “normal people” disables us far more than our bodies ever will.
The company is always developing new work and looking to train talented disabled and able-bodied performers. We want to put stories on stage that have never been told before.
The Raspberry Ripple effect starts with you. We want you to begin conversations with your colleagues which provoke a genuine change in the thinking around disability in the performing arts. Then we want you to make work.’
– Kate Hood, Founder and Artistic Director of Raspberry Ripple
