Ramps on the Moon is aiming to enrich the stories we tell and the way we tell them by normalising the presence of D/deaf and disabled people both on and off stage.
Led by New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, Ramps on the Moon brings together a collaborative network of six National Portfolio Organisation theatres: Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Nottingham Playhouse, Leeds Playhouse, Sheffield Theatres and strategic partner Graeae Theatre.
Together we: share learnings between partners and across the industry, work with the ‘Agents for Change’ within each partner theatre, make productions that reflect society back at itself, educate audiences on what to expect and ultimately give the industry as a whole permission to take risks.
We know there isn’t ‘one way’ of making a sea change. We also know that the work we do as a collective will enable theatre buildings and workforces to break down barriers to those who may think theatre isn’t for them.
