helping hands (2019) - in production
When the whole world wants you to be a certain way, what does it mean to get “help”?
Directors: Hannah Aroni, Jess Gonsalvez and James Matthews
Devising cast: Tara Daniel, Vanessa Di Natale, Emily Griffith, Dee Matthews, Artemis Munoz, Aislinn Murray and Alexander Woollatt
In a world built for neurotypical people, sometimes autistic people need help. But … what does that mean, exactly?
Created in collaboration with a majority-neurodivergent cast, Helping Hands digs into questions of interdependence, normalisation, power, compromise, good intentions, and better living through goblin mentorship.
By turns surrealist and sweet, hilarious and horrific, Helping Hands explores what help is, and what help could be.
