If These Spasms Could Speak

A collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising narratives, gathered through interviews with disabled people. Let us tell you how we perceive ourselves.

As disabled people, our bodies are central to how we exist in the world. They are the way others first judge us, the subject of medical diagnosis and usually seen as the reason that we can’t take part in society.

An engaging, humorous and interactive performance about disabled people that exposes a truth behind bodies that differ from the norm.

Post-show talk: Wednesday 3 September.  All post show talks are BSL Interpreted and speech to text transcribed.
