Aby Watson Back and Forth and Forth and Back (working title)


Aby and collaborators, will be using the studio residency time to continue research and development for Back and Forth and Forth and Back (working title).

Back and Forth and Forth and Back is a relaxed dance performance of joyous, sensual neurodivergent embodiment, as a dyslexic, dyspraxic and ADHD mind-body dances itself into being – and outside of neuronormative values. Through a series of performative portraits, neurodivergent lived experience bounces, rocks and articulates itself through compositions of dance, image and text – underscored by a groove-inducing soundtrack that won’t keep anyone still. Impulsive, energetic, off-kilter and wonderfully weird, BFFB neurodiversifies dance performance by celebrating the joy of moving through the world in a different way.

Commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Creative Scotland. Supported by The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Work Rooms residency programme.
