Watch: Total Permission, documentary about Deaf and disabled artists on The Space

Posted on November 26, 2012

Following this year’s most successful Paralympic Games ever, a ground-breaking new documentary has been unveiled which follows British conductor Charles Hazlewood, founder of the British Paraorchestra, as he encounters 12 of the artists commissioned by Unlimited (a strand of the London 2012 Festival that encourages deaf and disabled artists to take risks) to create work that is not just unlimited, but exceptional.

In Total Permission, Hazlewood talks to the artists, reviews their work and speaks to audience members at the Unlimited festival, described by Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow as “enshrining what we have learnt from the Paralympics”.
