We Ask These Questions of Everybody [working title]
An electronic opera by Amble Skuse and Toria Banks
"Find a disabled community, they will save your life, they will teach you many things - how to survive in a world that’s not made for you.”
Hannah needs help. She meets Lynn. Lynn works for a company that works for the Department of Work and Pensions. An assessment takes place. And then something else.
This is an encounter between two women, an audience, and a riotous chorus of disabled voices. With text drawn from real conversations; samples, soundscapes and singing; and interactive software; We Ask These Questions of Everybody shares radical, surprising and utopian disabled perspectives on self, society and the body.
This is a 50-minute live and digital operatic event sharing disabled people’s experiences under austerity in the UK, performed by an exceptional cross-genre, all-disabled ensemble.
A Sound Festival commission supported by Help Musicians, Mahogany Opera Group, Ignite Ticket Fund and Creative Scotland.
