-ish is a choreography of movement, text and object exploring the murky territory that dyspraxia inhabits between the simple dichotomy of able / disabled. Made and performed by a dyspraxic artist, -ish is a performance of real effort (and real chaos) which forms an unapologetic exploration of inbetween-ness that flourishes with and thrives on dys-function.

The premiere of -ish took place in the Purcell Room at The Southbank Centre, London and was the final performance of Southbank's Unlimited Festival.
