Sick + Twisted is a theatre company dedicated to creating work exploring the experience of living with a disability.
Artists with disabilities enjoy many advantages in the development and pursuit of our craft:
Living with a disability means living in a world that is dangerous, therefore artists with disabilities are accustomed to taking big risks. The danger we live with makes us daring artists.
Living with a disability means applying mindfulness to all that we do, therefore artists with disabilities are accustomed to applying focused effort to the tasks at hand. The need for mindfulness gives us the kind of focused presence that leads to artistic rigour.
Living with a disability means having to figure out our own ways of completing daily tasks, therefore artists with disabilities approach problem-solving with greater mental agility. Creative innovation is one of disabilities side effects.
Sick + Twisted embraces these advantages, creating work that is risky, rigorous and innovative: an accurate reflection of the experience of living with disability.
