Cian is London’s oldest baby. At 6ft tall, he struggles to fit into his cot. But fit he must – this is where people think he should stay…
Join Cian and his child-minder as he tries to makes sense of her trying to make sense of people trying to make sense of him. Just don’t let him out of your sight! He keeps trying to run away … such a handful.
In 2017, Access All Areas will team up with DreamThinkSpeak to create MADHOUSE, an immersive performance exploring the historical and current isolation of learning disabled people. In the year ahead, watch out for our artist-inmates as they escape for a day.
