This animated colour live action music video, was made by participants in Carousel, an arts organisation by and for people with learning disabilities. It illustrates what it feels like to be lost in a big city – everything is very big and scary, and it always rains. It includes shots of The Apollo theatre, Hammersmith. The music is provided by Beat Express, a learning disabled rock group also supported by Carousel for the Debbie Rock Angel Opera.
The film was made by Carousel and shown as part of “Debbie Rock Angel,” a multi-media performance show that premiered in Brighton, UK in November 2006, prior to a short tour across the South East. The show was the first rock opera written, directed and performed by learning disabled musicians, performers, film-makers and DJs.
