Co-artistic director Cheryl Martin has been awarded the Unlimited Wellcome Collection Partnership Award.
One Woman invites the audience inside the mind of the survivor, using binaural sound and projection for immersive storytelling, in order to understand the joys and fears of survival.
Cheryl Martin is a unique voice in today’s theatre, both in her own performances and in the work she makes with others as a director. In both kinds of work, she examines experiences that most people are afraid to talk about, but approaches them with a humour, warmth, and raw honesty that draws audiences in and allows them to explore with her, fearlessly.
We are delighted to announce the latest Unlimited awards with over £550,000 to support the development of ambitious new artistic work by 26 disabled artists and companies.
Unlimited supports disabled artists to create and present exceptional work across all art forms. Since 2013, Unlimited has provided nearly £4 million to 280 disabled artists through commissions, awards and support, making it the largest supporter of disabled artists worldwide.
We are currently funded by Arts Council England, Arts Council of Wales, British Council and Spirit of 2012, and delivered by Shape Arts and Artsadmin. We are delighted to be able to offer Partnership Awards this year, working with Wellcome Collection, Farnham Maltings, Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust, GOSH Arts and Forma.
