Cian Binchy and Access All Areas present
The Misfit Analysis
Cian has autism. He likes to spin tin-openers. He’s taught all the actors on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time how to be autistic. They’re very good at it. Journeying through Cian’s mischievous mind, The Misfit Analysis takes us through a world of wheelchairs and blow up dolls in an unconventional exploration of an autistic mind. This is not Rain Man. Using multi-media, video projection and his unique brand of performance poetry, Cian playfully questions the place of disability in today’s world.
After a sell out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and appearances on BBC 1, The Misfit Analysis launches in London as part of VAULT festival 2016, and headlines the CanCanCan Festival in Birmingham.
Jake Jarvis presents What’s in the Bag?
A long-time member of One of a Kind Theatre Company, Jake uses non-verbal theatre to explore situations and ideas that arise in everyday (and sometimes not everyday) life. What's in the Bag? is a comic and frightening piece of physical theatre.
Vicki Taylor, poet
I’m Vicki. Two eyes on my face; two ‘I’s in my name! I am also a member of Because We CanCanCan Company and One Of A Kind. I am also a Researcher and Arts Award Lead Deliverer at Work in Progress Arts Ltd. I am a 28 year old young lady who has multiple disabilities. I am interested in all creative art forms, but my background is drama and poetry, having performed outside of school since the age of 14. I like writing and performing poetry because it helps me to share experiences with others and helps them relate to different things. The best thing about acting is having the opportunity to experience what it can be like to be someone who doesn’t have a disability. Oh, and I love RAINBOWS!’
