As a South West based disabled artist, Hugh Malyon graduated from Plymouth University with a BA in Theatre and Performance.
Building upon momentum generated by You, Me and My Voice, (an ACE
supported tour of the SW probing voice, communication and commonality) his practice has continued to evolve, particularly in response to the current landscape, entering hybridisation of moving imagery and live improv techniques.
Hugh connects and engages with space and audiences through autobiographical, experimental play and shared narratives; “spanning multi-disciplinary performance/hybrid digital creation, I find meaningful connections and relationships through theory and practice, practically engaging critical thinking and emotion. Utilising commonality and reflection, I disrupt toxic narratives and prejudices of disability and society. My practice speaks louder than words – to listen to more than just words.”
