A Normal Child
Posted on 23 Oct 2019


Our collaboration with The Disability Slapstick Plan – A Normal Child – premiered at Northcote Town Hall, Melbourne Wednesday 23rd October 2019.

Disability Slapstick Plan was developed as an artistic response to disability action plans which are tokenistically established to meet legal obligations, this collective occupied pavements, rammed wheelie bins and smiled at staircases until discovering a way of working that captures democracy in action.

Working with the Artistic Directors of Ridiculusmus over the last four years the DSP has evolved into a robust ensemble of four Melbourne based artists with different physical abilities – Jess Kapuscinski-Evans, Eva Sifis, Trevor Dunn and Betty Bobbitt. Turning access driven attention to theatre, stories and representation, their work explores fetishisation, exploitation, empowerment and the complexity of polyphonic discourse.
