“We are not interested in your pity or sympathy; we are comfortable in our skin!”

In Neither Heroes, nor Ordinary People, those on stage tell their own versions of the truth about what it's like to live with a disability in today's society. Linked together with music, dance, song, poetry, beat box, and more traditional performance, The Other Ordinary presents an exhilarating, heart-wrenching, devised and inclusive performance that will have you laughing, crying and thinking at its conclusion.

A show that takes the experiences of the disabled, along with the able bodied, and displays how they intertwine, intersect and transform. Through words, music and movement, and even a little beat boxing, the voice of a minority is amplified and celebrated. “In the need for accessibility and change these broken bodies are not the problem…it’s simply what goes on in our minds and how we use them.
