”Meet Fred” is an entertaining snapshot into the life of a potty-mouthed puppet with a feisty personality who fights prejudice every day. It is an original exploration of what it means to be different, an outsider trying to make his mark in a world in which he needs a lot of help. Hijinx is an inclusive theatre company based in Cardiff. All their productions include learning disabled performers alongside performers without learning disability.
The performance at 17:00 will be followed by an artist talk with German sign language interpretation. Presentation: André Studt – Institute of Theatre and Media Studies, FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg
