Robert Softley – If These Spasms Could Speak


We know you want to look, to stare even. It’s OK. You’re allowed.


An outstanding solo performance based on a collection of funny, sad, touching and surprising stories about disabled people and their bodies.


Created and performed by actor Robert Softley (co-creator of National Theatre of Scotland’s Girl X) this show was a sell out hit at the Arches’ BEHAVIOUR festival in 2012.


An engaging, highly humorous and interactive live art performance about disabled people that exposes a truth behind bodies that differ from the norm.


“As disabled people, our bodies are central to how we exist in the world. They’re the way others first judge us, the subject of medical diagnosis, and usually seen as the reason that we can’t take part in society. And yet, they also carry with them volumes of stories about incidents, scrapes and calamities. Let us tell you how we perceive ourselves.”
