Brighton Festival 2019Public booking opens: Fri 24 Feb, 9am

Relaxed performances

Open to everyone, these performances are particularly welcoming for audiences with an Autistic Spectrum Condition or a learning disability. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around, and there may be small changes to light and sound effects. Visual Stories are also made available ahead of your visit to help familiarise you with the production.

Distorted Constellations
Sat 4–Sun 19 May

An exhibition inspired by artist Nwando Ebizie’s rare neurological disorder, Visual Snow, and research into the neuroscience of perception and drawing on rituals of African origin. 

Not strictly a 'relaxed performance', during Distorted Constellations a ground floor space in Lighthouse will be transformed into a sensory antechamber, designed with the needs of neurodivergent people in mind.

On Sat 18 May the exhibition will be accompanied by a performance Intimacy/Touch/Tingles, exploring Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response
