The renowned Amici Dance Theatre Company, the world’s first disability-inclusive professional dance company, will celebrate their 40thanniversary with the world premiere of One World: Wealth of the Common People, albeit a little late due to the world-wide Covid pandemic, with a full-company production which tells the personal and sometimes harrowing stories of just a few of the refugees and displaced people in the world today. With over 80 disabled and non-disabled performers on stage, many specially invited from all over the world, this festival of colour and music, tragedy and comedy will be Amici’s biggest production to date. Directed by Amici’s artistic director, Wolfgang Stange, the show will celebrate the beauty, love and unity of people from different cultures across the globe and be part of a celebratory week of workshops, a photographic exhibition and films. Amici are a unique integrated-arts company that have, over the years, inspired thousands of people to look at art (and the world) from a new and magical perspective. With a focus on individual talent regardless of ability, they help performers to realise their latent gifts as artists. They run weekly classes for its 40+ members, organise open-workshops, residencies, and student placements and stage performances throughout the year including their biennial full company show, performed in the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre’s Main House, where they are a Lyric Partner Company.
