This performance does not answer any questions about what it is like to be autistic or neurospicy/neurodivergent.
You are invited to reflect on what it is like to be. What it's like to be and be singled out, to be diagnosed, to be misunderstood, to be disempowered; what it is like when one's own perceptions are denied, when pain is ignored and needs are denied, when the authority to interpret one's own experiences and intentions is snatched away. But above all, we should reflect on what it is like to be, to be yourself, to be free, to be creative, to be funny, to be serious, to be individual, to really be there.
Here, only black (gender) queer intersectional perspectives of neurospicy / neurodivergent people are used, who also experience multiple discrimination and are particularly forgotten and patronized in the discussions about neurodiversity.
For the first time, Tessa Hart makes autism (including her own) the conscious focus of her performance work, bringing together personal experiences and extensive knowledge of neurodiversity and intersectionality. The performance is developed and created together with Sarah Fartuun Heinze and Landouma Ipé.
