Monday 19th February, 8pm In the 1900s, people with learning disabilities were often locked up in long-stay hospitals for life, separated from society, community and family. To give residents a moment of joy, nurses put caged birds on the wards. These birds sometimes became so depressed that they stopped singing. In 2018, people with learning disabilities are once again becoming isolated in their own homes as support structures disappear. In the coming year, Access All Areas and five learning disabled artists explore a history of abuse, and an enduring hope for revolution. Clipped has been developed as part of Access All Areas immersive MADHOUSE production, opening in Shoreditch Town Hall in March 2018.
