Candoco Dance Company – Team with No Name
Contemporary dance geeks, Kimberley and Anne-Gaëlle have been friends for 15 years (& counting!). Masters in their own gymnastics and medalists in working across time and distance, this duet explores a rich connection between two award-winning dreamers and specialists of the in-between, who relish in the unspectacular.

Ellen Renton – An Eye For An Eye For An Eye
Join Scottish poet Ellen Renton for a poetic exploration of what it means to grow up a girl, and how this experience intersects with disability and visual impairment. These poems concern themselves with looking: looking back over a childhood, looking again at what’s in front of us, and looking forward to possible futures. They visit girlhood and myth, blindness and friendship. They celebrate the freedom, shame, and awkwardness of coming to terms with our own bodies, and they ask what it means to look different and see differently. Based on the pamphlet of the same title published by Stewed Rhubarb Press.
7pm – Talawa Studio
Inner Vision Orchestra and Rachel Gadsden – Inner Vision Quintet x Rachel Gadsden
The Inner Vision Orchestra is excited (X-sighted!) to be performing at the Liberty Festival. They delight audiences with their unique blend of joyful music from all over the world, led by Indian maestro Baluji Shrivastav OBE. This performance will feature a quintet from India, Colombia, England and Japan. They regularly tour and perform in top venues around the UK, and have released music with Arc/Naxos.
This is a special collaboration with Rachel Gadsden – a celebrated visual and performance artist who will be live painting to capture the music. Rachel will create a “live performance artwork” that will capture the sound, energy and dynamics of the Inner Vision Orchestra’s concert.
