A new outdoor show, touring summer 2018

Seven extraordinary artists run, fly, catch, play and sing on a flying, tipping, and spinning stage, as they grapple with what it means to value each other in a world of instant judgments.

Extraordinary Bodies will explore what it’s like when your values as a human being are taken apart and reassembled. How your perceptions of your neighbours, colleagues, community and family are changed as each performer’s true worth is revealed. Community participation is at the heart of every performance.

What am I Worth? will be developed in early 2018, after a year of Creative Exploration with communities in 10 locations across the UK and Ireland, supported by Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund and with residencies at the National Theatre’s New Work Department.

Performed outdoors by an exceptional cast of disabled and non-disabled circus, theatre and music artists, What am I Worth? will tour from May 2018. The show will include live music, BSL interpretation and audio description, and will play to audiences of up to 1,000 people.

Directors: Billy Alwen and Claire Hodgson
Writer: Hattie Naylor
Composer: Ted Barnes
Set design and build: Will Datson
Devised by the company.
