Robert Softley / The Arches, UK
If These Spasms Could Speak | Project Arts Centre (Cube) | Sept 25 – 27
We know you want to look, to stare even. It’s OK. You’re allowed…
If These Spams Could Speak is an outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies.
Created and performed by Robert Softley, it exposes a truth behind bodies that differ from the norm. His own narrative – told with wry humour, charm and sincerity – is woven through with video interviews and monologue in an engaging and highly charismatic way. It is both a challenge to society’s perceptions and desire for classifications, and a celebration of being alive.
A sell-out hit at festivals and events across the UK, If These Spasms Could Speak is a tender and uplifting theatre experience.
