HE AIN'T HEAVY IS A NEW SHOW BY ODDLY MOVING. GRANIA PICKARD TELLS THE STORY OF GROWING UP WITH HER DISABLED AUTISTIC BROTHER "SEAN". IT WILL TOUR IN OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2017.
When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain't Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways.
“An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love through puppetry and an aerial swing. You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
