The Unlimited House of Krip celebrates the fusion of D/deaf and disabled performers with the gloriously extravagant world of vogue ball culture. Mark Smith (Artistic Director, Deaf Men Dancing), Garry Robson (Artistic Director, Fittings Multimedia Arts) and Darren Suarez (Artistic Director, House of Suarez) formed a “House” of Deaf performers to walk in the Legendary House of Suarez Vogue Ball. The company explored the traditions of the international Houses of the vogue movement whilst bringing their unique perspective to the party.

The House (the name for a team or family of performers who compete in balls) performed at the ball in Liverpool bringing their own unique take on Vogue whilst incorporating sign language into their routines. The full process from auditions to the ball was recorded by First Take Film and Media juxtaposing the history of the balls and their celebration of diversity and difference with the lives and experiences of the members of the Unlimited House of Krip.

Nominated for the International Iris Prize 2018 the documentary will be screened alongside Fittings brand new show about Vogue Culture from a Deaf and disabled perspective.
