“Who here hasn’t been rejected?” asks Adam Kelly, creator of ARCO. “This is my story of endurance, learning, adaptation, and optimism. Everyone can identify with it and have some fun at the same time.”
In 2022, WAYTCo is touring Adam’s award-winning show about living with autism to audiences in the South West and Great Southern.
This delightful 2-version show, supercharged by the exciting animations of local artist Ben Hollingsworth, takes a heartfelt look at the life and struggles of an autistic gentleman trying to make connections with the people and world around him. Winner of the ECU Performing Arts Award, Adam asks gently of his audience to consider life from his perspective.
Join Adam and Finbar as they dance, draw, fly and joke their way into your hearts.
Written by Adam Kelly and James Berlyn. Directed by James Berlyn. Performed by Adam Kelly. Animated by Ben Hollingsworth with Arts Mentorship by Joanna Keyser. Sound design by Tristen Parr. Lighting design: Pete Young.
