THEM ASPIES

  

Created by Jess Gonsalvez and Tom Middleditch

   

With the increase in autism diagnoses and the changes in diagnostic criteria over the past twelve months, there is an air of confusion surrounding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Asperger's Syndrome. Nine young performers traverse this landscape. Together, they show fragments of the lives of young people on the Spectrum, navigating the complex spheres of mental health, social acceptance, sexuality, and gender identity. The audience enclose this space. They are staring at each other. In many ways, they are an audience to their own preconceptions.
 
THEM ASPIES is ultimately a work that deals with the triumph that cultivates within pain, ripping the bandaid off modern perceptions of Autism and Aspergers. It is a show that boldly asks;
 
"Are we more like Them Aspies than we ever thought we were?"
