In 2017 Extraordinary Bodies travel the country, visiting communities in 10 different places across the UK and Ireland. In each place we are sharing circus, music and storytelling skills with diverse community groups, in return for their ideas, stories and responses to the question, What am I Worth?
We want to understand how people see their own value and how they would like their worth recognised in society.
By the end of the year we will begin to make a new show: What am I Worth?
Joyful, radical, bold and accessible, the performance will tackle head on our assessment of value and our fear of difference. It will celebrate the stories of people who create their own sense of worth, despite a culture that devalues them.
Performed outdoors by an exceptional cast of disabled and non-disabled circus, theatre and music artists, What am I Worth? will tour from summer 2018. The show will include live music, BSL interpretation and audio description, and will play to audiences of up to 1,000 people.
