A West Yorkshire Playhouse, LittleMighty and Theatre in the Mill co-production.
Throughout Pauline’s life, people have made assumptions about her based on her gender, background and race. She’s defied these expectations at every turn, tearing up the narrative that society tried to impose on her. Now, Pauline is finally ready to tell the world her story. Carefully balancing dance and theatre, What If I Told You? immerses us in Pauline’s world as she invites us to pause, breathe and reconsider the stories we tell about our past and the history on which we build our futures.

Pauline Mayers is a choreographer and theatre-maker, who creates shows that come to life at the meeting point of dance and theatre.
Written and Performed by Pauline Mayers. Director Chris Goode.

Looking for exciting and unique projects to produce? Interested in expanding your practice? Passionate about supporting the work of diverse and different artists?
A number of learning disabled artists based in West Yorkshire are looking for Freelance Producers to work on a variety of fantastic projects. Some projects are G4A funded and need a Producer immediately to come in and hit the ground running by helping to deliver the 'make and premiere’. Others are at the beginning of the development process and need a creative Producer to help refine ideas, identify touring venues and submit funding bids. 
All the artists work regularly with Mind the Gap, based in Bradford. However these are not Mind the Gap projects. The artists' work is their own, and they need to collaborate with brilliant people to make it happen.

men, ageing and mortality

Written by Mike Kenny and directed by Alan Dix
with music by James Frewer
and photography by Shanaz Gulzar
If you're the only one who's still around
All your friends are gone, or under the ground.
How come you were the last
Remembering the past?
You just stand and stare
And wonder if it happened, were you ever really there?
What’s it really like to be an old man?  Entering your seventh, eighth or ninth decade?  509 Arts presents the latest iteration of Sing & Louder Sing, their latest work exploring the inner landscape of the older man and drawing on the diverse voices of ageing men from the local area.   The event will include script-in-hand readings, songs and projections  and  the launch of an accompanying publication,
Sing & Louder Sing blends testimony, music, myth, humour, photography and the science of ageing to create an event where the older man is seen in a different light – human and exposed, a synthesis of experience and fortune, fate and accident; a biological clock that is inevitably destined to stop.
“You are wondering when It’s going to happen, what’s going to happen – it’s a road you’ve got to travel alone. “ 
Sing & Louder Sing has been commissioned by Theatre in the Mill to mark the 50thanniversary of the founding of the University of Bradford.
