Country Arts SA and Tutti Arts present a Company AT production
A unique, full-hearted and funny look at how autistic people see the world.
This Ruby Award-nominated play is coming to Port Pirie in February for a week-long residency followed by two free work-in-progress showings in preparation for its season at the 2019 DreamBIG Children’s Festival.
“Nameless” is a nine-year-old girl who loves nothing more than her family, star-gazing and hot chips. Nameless is hyper-intelligent but she sometimes does strange things and the bullies call her “dopey” and “weird”. She feels isolated, sad and confused, until a medical diagnosis reveals the truth – Nameless has autism.
Taking comfort in the stories of her scientific heroes and imaginary friends Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton, Nameless sets out on a journey of the imagination to find strength and confidence in her differences and happiness in herself.
Two years in the making, Company AT’s original production, Impersonal Space, premiered in 2017 to great acclaim from reviewers and audiences alike. The Company AT ensemble, led by Artistic Director Julian Jaensch, played a huge part in the development of Impersonal Space, with their personal experiences informing how an autistic person would be portrayed on stage.
Two FREE public showings plus Q&A with the Artistic Director. Bookings are required.
