Do you identify as disabled and/or Deaf and/or with disability?
Why do you do what you do?
My purpose in making theatre is not only to reveal my own truth, but to do so in a way that allows others to connect with theirs. As an artist with lived experience of chronic illness and a history of mental illness, I feel a keen responsibility to challenge preconceptions and break down the stigma surrounding both invisible and visible disabilities. I have experienced firsthand the power of storytelling for social change when people are moved and entertained, they are far more likely to be receptive to ideas that are socially confronting. My prefered approach for creating is through collaboration, intersecting artforms and working with multidisciplinary artists. I like to obscure and tease apart these often hard topics, abstracting real life stories by utilising humour, movement, visual imagery, voice and sound.
