"Nameless" - the central character in Impersonal Space

Impersonal Space

A unique, full-hearted and funny look at how autistic people see and experience the world

“Nameless” is a nine-year-old girl who loves nothing more than her family, star-gazing, and hot chips. But Nameless isn’t like the other children at school: hyper intelligent, she excels at maths and reads books at a teenage level. Sometimes she does strange things like shout when people touch her or scream when class gets too loud, and the bullies call her “dopey” and “weird”. She feels isolated, sad and confused, until a medical diagnosis reveals the truth – Nameless has autism.

Taking comfort in the stories of her scientific heroes and imaginary friends Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton, geniuses many now believe were on the spectrum themselves, Nameless sets out on a journey of the imagination to find strength and confidence in her differences and happiness in herself.

This is the story of how a family comes to terms with difference and how a young girl comes to terms with herself.

Impersonal Space is an original production by Company AT, one of the world’s first performing arts ensembles where all members are on the autism spectrum.

Supported by Australia Council, Arts South Australia, Creative Partnerships Australia and Autism SA.

Three shows of the season will offer Auslan and audio description. Click on the following link for the pre-show notes developed by Access2Arts.

All shows are wheelchair accessible.

Fierce visual art exhibition @ Fisher Jeffries
Apr 5 @ 9:00 am – Apr 26 @ 5:00 pm

Fierce is a celebration of Tutti Arts’ female visual artists and their unique perspectives. The exhibition is equal measures of vibrant and bold, and soft and pastel, creating a striking impression and an insight into the artists themselves. Expressing themselves as both artists and women, this work offers no explanations or justifications, it is simply Fierce.
