This is the Point 2019 Tour

A PLAY ABOUT LOVE, SEX & DISABILITY

Co-produced by Ahuri Theatre and The Theatre Centre

THIS IS THE POINT is a joyous and unflinching portrait of four individuals whose lives have been shaped, in part, by cerebral palsy.

WINNER OF 2 DORA MAVOR MOORE AWARDS INCLUDING OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION AND ENSEMBLE!

Dan and Christina are parents searching for the best way their disabled son Bruno can share his voice. Tony is a non-verbal adult who won’t shut up. Liz is his long-time romantic partner grappling with the judgements that society makes about their love and sexuality. Through a series of staged conversations and theatrical reenactments, these two couples draw from their personal lives to explore and debate questions of representation, the nature of companionship and whether people of different abilities can ever connect with each other on equal terms.

This new play has been developed in Residency at The Theatre Centre. It incorporates high and low tech augmented communication aids (devices used by non-verbal people to express themselves), as well as projected live video feeds, to create a heightened naturalistic style that simultaneously connects and contrasts the physical body with the technologies we use to communicate.
