ODDLY MOVING IS A NEW CIRCUS THEATRE COMPANY SET UP BY GRANIA PICKARD, THEY ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON THEIR SECOND SHOW ATLAS.
Their debut show He Ain't Heavy told the story of Grania growing up with her disabled autistic brother "Sean" and toured the UK extensively. The show used physical theatre, aerial circus, audience interaction, storytelling and puppetry to reveal to the audience how Sean walks, talks and interacts with the world as well as how his unique take on life has shaped Grania.
"When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain't Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways." GRANIA PICKARD
“An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love through puppetry and an aerial swing. You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
