Explain Normal

hero

There are normal ways to eat, walk, sit, speak and die. 
There are also not normals, not normal ways for everything.
Not normal ways to love, to dance, to start a conversation, to cry. There are not normal ways to live.
As we all continually evolve our idea of normal, we ask what makes us part of a society and who is included? OK let’s say it – there is no such thing as normal.

Explain Normal is a new dance theatre work directed by participatory artist Daniele Constance. It is a new and exciting artistic collaboration between the Aha Ensemble who identify with disability and artists from Phluxus2 Dance Collective. Explain Normal explores how these artists define perceptions of normalcy, through the lens of their diverse experiences.
