Ushiku Crisafulli and The Peer Hat presents: Unmasked – a journey through the autistic mind via hip hop, comedy and theatre.
On Tuesday 21st September I’ll be doing a scratch performance of my piece Unmasked which exams concepts around autistic authenticity through comedy, theatrical monologues and hip hop at @thepeerhat.
As it is an early scratch performance ahead of the full preview at @oldbankstudios in April 2022 I’ll be supported by a group of fantastic performers.
In hour 1 we’ll be joined by @loll_1989 a passionate poet and excellent barber – (check out @loll_barber89 for dope cuts) whose spoken word is just a cut above; and @tonkabell131 Manchester’s favourite non-binary fairy whose words capture a range of emotions from the importance of sharing to the weirdest of love.
In hour 2 we’ll have comedy from a comic that might just be too cool in @kierankeeshgrey and a fantastic comic storyteller in @justina_sesel followed by a trip through childhood via the musical musings of @mr.jonnyholland who first came to my attention when I saw him doing sick metal riffs to Sonic the Hedgehog.
Oh and some muppet called Ushi in the 3rd hour too
