Senses Expressive Arts and Education Centre provides educational activities, care and support for adults with disabilities living in Hull.

These can include severe physical disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities and challenging behaviour and mild learning difficulties. To showcase the talents and to celebrate the freedom and culture of adults living with disabilities, Senses will work with its clients and professional local artists – including Michael Precious, Sarah Holich, Tre Amici opera trio, rapper Nineties Boy, folk group Spare Hands and Helen Garnett (Britain’s Got Talent) – to put on two outdoor performances Senses Of The Sea and Slave To The Senses, and a grand finale evening indoor show as part of the Tell the World season.

Each performance will tell a story and highlight the skills, abilities and accomplishments of the performers. They will also enable the audience develop an understanding of the issues facing disabled people and how they overcome disadvantage and discrimination to gain freedom.

Performance dates are as follows:

Friday 24 March 2017, 1pm-2pm: Senses Of The Sea, Zebedee’s Yard, Hull city centre.

Open-air musical theatre performance celebrating Hull’s fishing industry. Ticketed.

Friday 15 September 2017, 1pm-2pm: Slave To The Senses, Hull Museum Quarter Gardens, High Street, Hull.

Slave to the Senses uses contemporary theatre to celebrate Hull’s links to eradicating slavery and relates the experiences of repression and freedom of disabled people. This quirky and thought provoking piece includes performances by local rapper Nineties Boy and opera singer Leroy Vickers.

Free and unticketed. This show has limited capacity so get down early to avoid disappointment.

Friday 17 November 2017, 7.30pm-11pm: We Are 5 Senses, Freedom Centre, Preston Road, east Hull.
