What does it feel like to have faith, to hold power, to find community? Disciples is a joyful, dynamic performance that comes to life through a blend of music, movement, text and image – led by poetry.

Devised by an ensemble cast of women and non-binary people who identify as D/deaf, disabled, and neurodivergent, the show is a powerful act of collaboration that places often-ignored stories at the centre of its world.

All performances audio described, and captioned and will include creative use of BSL performed by a member of the cast throughout.

The show is led by movement director Rachel Drazek and poet and playwright Ellen Renton and devised with the ensemble.

Age Guidance: 14+

Disciples is presented by Stellar Quines Theatre Company in association with Traverse Theatre supported by dancebase and Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

Our relaxed performances are for anyone who would benefit from watching the show in a more informal and laid-back environment. More information can be found here.
