Corali devise, present and tour performance work made by a core group of permanent company members (who have learning disabilities) and artistic collaborators (who do not have learning disabilities). Corali is best known for its unique site-specific performance (in settings like shop windows, lift lobby’s, disused buildings and foyer spaces) and for its partnerships with high profile London venues such as Tate Modern. Corali also tour its performance work, mostly in London, although as one-off’s, nationally and internationally.
Corali encourages its members to gain confidence in terms of performing for a public audience and in themselves as professional artists. Corali encourages its members to learn to express themselves as artists, and to use this as a way to build confidence and independence in their day-to-day lives and interactions with people. Corali encourages its performers to take responsibility for themselves as well as how to work as part of a company. Performances are generated through collaborative discussion and the performers want the focus to be on the artistic content of the work, not their learning disability.
