Guide Gods

Acclaimed performer Claire Cunningham goes on a perilous quest to explore how the major world faiths view deafness and disability.

This witty and illuminating new show uses dance, live music, humour and interviews with religious leaders, academics and deaf and disabled people.

Claire is disabled.

Is it the will of a higher power?
Is she paying for the mistakes of a past life?
Is it a test for her, or a punishment for her parents?
Could she, should she, be healed?
Is she welcomed by all faiths or will it all prove just too inaccessible?

There is a chance afterwards to have some tea, chat and to ponder your own beliefs (will Karma catch up with you if you help yourself to too many biscuits?).

A Southbank Centre & Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queens co-commission
