Delighted to see In Water I’m Weightless, my Unlimited Commission to be produced by National Theatre Wales in 2012, was included in the preview guide to London 2012. ‘Britain’s biggest ever cultural festival’ over the weekend.

I quote from the festival supplement, written by a journalist:

Stories that Come to Life

A character hears sound for the first time, while the audience reads sign language in back-projected subtitles in a powerful experimental work that treats disability as entirely normal, exploring the endless possibilities created by “human difference.” Writer Kaite O’Reilly, herself visually disabled, spent three years talking to deaf and disabled people, creating a collage of fictional monologues that is poetic, moving, challenging and often very funny. Six of Britain’s leading disabled actors, often performing outside their own disabilities, take part in a dynamic, expressonistic staging that contrasts the warmth and intimacy of stories told direct to the audience with dance and live projections.

In Water I’m Weightless Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, July 26-August 4 2012.
