Transformations

Wheelchairs, hoists and lifts, normally the signifiers of disability, were refigured as creative, playful, even aesthetic objects. Through targeted training, which the group undertook together, and by bringing together young people with extreme physical and learning needs with highly trained dancers, the project aimed to reverse some of the normal modes of participatory practice, disrupting boundaries between choreographer/mover, artist/participant, observer/maker.
