Welcome to Hijinx Unity Festival
A surprisingly different arts festival
The ninth Hijinx Unity Festival took place from 23rd June to 2nd July 2016 and showcased a remarkable range of international inclusive and disability performance in Cardiff.
UK performers were joined by companies and artists from Spain, Sweden, Ethiopia, France and Germany who performed on The Hayes, in the heart of Cardiff’s retail centre, at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre and at the city’s award winning pub theatre The Other Room at Porter’s.
Record audiences experienced performances that included walkabout Shakespeare, tyre-based circus, roaming theatre, fiery flamenco, classic Swedish theatre, puppetry, contemporary and community dance and a tequila infused theatrical homage to artist Frida Kahlo.
