15th September 2021 – JOY Festival Night 1

7.30pm – 9pm, The Lyric Hammersmith Theatre

The opening night of JOY will showcase some of the best quality disabled artists in the borough. Starting with poetry from Colin Hambrook and Wendy Young, a new dance piece by members or Amici and ending the night listening to music created and performed by Bad Habits.

The Love LOde – alternative spoken word pieces performed by Colin Hambrook and Wendy Young on the theme of love in all its ravages and glory.

When I See Your Face – Dances created from the thoughts and dreams of Rosie after listening to her sister’s beautiful album ‘Before a New Harbour Can Be Built Difficult Things Must Be Worked Out’. Featuring music from The Vespertine Quintet, live music from Alice Jelaska and Maya McCourt, and poetry from Rosie Leak. The piece captures moments of human struggle, connection, and love.

Bad Habits Medley – Songs of Social Conscience and True-life stories inspired from lockdown and world events presented through an acoustic electric set as a duo. Very intimate and organic.

JOY Festival is a celebration of local disabled artists, produced by Turtle Key Arts in partnership with HF ArtsFest and the Lyric Hammersmith.
