BOP Artists is a new residency opportunity in partnership with National Theatre of Scotland for disabled artists in Scotland to develop their skills and an idea for a new project that will impact on career and practice in the longer term.
Aminder’s project for development during BOP Artists is ‘Cure(d)’, it will examine the Doctor – Patient relationship and self-interrogation relating to physical disabilities and mental health. ‘Cure(d)’ is an exploration into the effects of medication usage upon one’s identity; a probe into the conflicts and harmonies between human-health, pharmaceuticals, the imposed responsibility entrusted to give or take medication, and to assume all liability for risks and side effects.
Working in partnership with National Theatre of Scotland, Birds of Paradise Theatre Company is supporting three artists to develop their skills, networks and ideas through the following phases:
Introductory phase – June to August 2017
Skills Development phase – September to October 2017
Ideas Development phase – November to December 2017
