The show covers themes of rejection
Adam Kelly is, in his words, an autistic gentleman. His friend Finbar is a fish. Adam thinks that asking someone what it feels like to live with autism is pretty much like asking a fish if it knows it’s in water, which is pretty funny if you think about it.
All the way from Perth, Western Australia (WA), ARCO Jnr is an award-wining solo show about living with autism, 'a beautifully constructed, personal perspective of life on the autism spectrum that leaves… a rare feeling of connection to the protagonist' (Lydia Edwards, Seesaw).
Join us as Adam and Finbar dance, draw, fly and joke their way into our hearts.
