The CanCanCan Festival, funded by Birmingham City Council, will take place over 9 and 10 March 2016, including theatre, performance and visual art produced by young people with learning disabilities.
A highlight of the CanCanCan Festival is The Misfit Analysis by Access All Areas and Cian Binchy. This one-man performance takes the audience into the mischievous mind of Cian, a man who has autism, likes to spin tin-openers – but is decidedly not an idiot.
Cian Binchy was autism consultant for the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. The Misfit Analysis has received brilliant reviews, with The New York Times declaring it ‘quirky, informative and funny’.
Further details of the CanCanCan Festival will be announced soon.
