ARCO – Junior

About the show

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.

Then the pandemic struck and the music which was created and ready for an audience was never heard-UNTIL now. Coombe Boys’ School and pupils from Year 5 at Burlington Junior School, Christ Church New Malden and Malden Manor Primary have been working in partnership to bring this music to life!
