Freedom to Move

Do you sleep in your wheelchair? Are you possessed? Can you have sex?

After collapsing during a street dance assessment, Katie found herself with a rather unexpected co-star for both her life and this performance… Wallace the Wheelchair. Whilst her new set of wheels gave her the freedom to move, they also sparked people’s curiosity and thus Katie found herself bombarded with hilariously bizarre questions.

Questions that shouldn’t be asked to disabled people but are.

Through wit, movement and laughter, this autobiographical solo(ish) performance examines these questions, the funny, the intrusive and the weird, with the hope of dispelling some of the misconceptions that surround disability.

Freedom to Move uses subtitling, British Sign Language, and audio description to create a show that is accessible to all.

“What begins as a show responding to other people’s perceptions and views becomes instead one that confidently and imaginatively sets its own parameters, and in doing so, creates something that offers a fresh perspective, and is unexpectedly moving.” – Circles & Stalls
