Tutti Arts’ Theatre program is led by accomplished director Catherine Fitzgerald. Company AT is an adult theatre ensemble for autistic actor-performers with three acclaimed productions under its belt.
TAXI! Is a music theatre work about the humour and pathos of life. It is being developed by Pat Rix and Tutti artists with Adelaide’s Sikh taxi drivers, hip-hop artists L-FRESH The Lion and Mirrah, members of Quirkestra, and artist Daniel Connell. Through cultural and life events which bring families together and then tear them apart, the stories reveal how cultural differences and living with a disability impact on birth, marriage, sex and destiny.
Say No More is a rich collage of women’s stories, told via song, film, spoken word, sign language and visual art. 26 women artists from Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia drew on deeply personal experiences to create a wedding reception like no other. The myth and romance of the perfect wedding is both indulged and exposed through stories of longing, disempowerment, and, ultimately, survival.
Impersonal Space is a unique, full-hearted and funny look at how autistic people see the world. Impersonal Space tells the story of ‘Nameless’, a nine-year-old girl who feels isolated, sad and confused, until a medical diagnosis reveals the truth – she is autistic. Nameless sets out on a journey of the imagination to find strength in her differences and happiness in herself.
The first fruit of an international collaboration between learning disabled artists in Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia, BEASTLY! grew from artists’ reflections about how we, as humans, relate to the animal world. BEASTLY! features three intimate performances: The Beast, The Collector and The Bowerbird set amongst the BEASTLY! village.
