In Water I’m Weightless

A look at the human body that makes you think. The words are poetic, touching and at times very funny. 

A provocative look at the human body with dynamic staging that combines movement and live projections. Kaite O’Reilly’s poetic, poignant and at times explosively funny writing is inspired by the imaginations, experiences and attitudes of disabled people across the UK.

Performed by a cast of leading Deaf and disabled performers with direction by John E McGrath and movement by Nigel Charnock and Catherine Bennett, this radical, physical production from National Theatre Wales celebrates the athleticism, diversity and skill of the company, whilst exploring the endless possibilities of human difference.

‘Thrillingly vitriolic’ **** (The Guardian)

‘Thoroughly enjoyable… Kaite O’Reilly’s epic final monologue... [is] worthy almost of Shakespeare in its rhythm and intensity.’ **** (Arts Desk)
