Special thanks to Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, and Michael Prickett for additional video footage.

In Water I’m Weightless is based on a series of monologues by Kaite O’Reilly, which were inspired by the imagination, experience and attitudes of disabled people across the UK. The show takes a provocative look at the body, and is performed by a cast of six outstanding Deaf and disabled performers.

The poetic, poignant, and at times explosively funny texts explore the endless possibilities of human difference.
