TOWARDS

What am I when you're not looking?
People looking.
Not asking what, if any, assistance is wanted but just attempt to do things, without any consideration of what we do when they're not there. As if my life only exists when they are there. Does the tree which falls in a people-less wood still make a sound with no one to hear it? Do I still have needs when there's no one there to supply them?

The COMMUNITY of Disabled People
The 'final solution' as continued to be performed on our community. Abortion depopulating, destroying our community.

What are the extremes of my situation and extremes of issues within disability? The absurd extreme of how we are treated, viewed, (un)acknowledged.

My absence from the performance/event space raises issues about disabled people being absent in society. YET my situation is the duality. I'm disabled and this stops, me from having access to transport, accommodation, personal assistance. I also have psychological difficulties with travel, being in the world, mistrust of people, which might be partly, or solely, due to the social/environmental disabling of above.
I am however also fascinated by the whole idea of being personally absent yet there in other ways. I like the play with anonymity and privacy.

Magic cape - developing a character. Various pieces over a period, accumulating like living it. Developing character, incidents.
My experience is different, though all around pressure to accept a given as my experience - deny my own, myself is denied
