An alternative cabaret night celebrating neurodiversity, featuring performers whose minds work a little differently…

LINE UP

Daniel Oliver

The cabaret night will be hosted by Daniel Oliver, a performance artist who makes participatory performances that aim to embrace dyspraxia.

Just the thought of Daniel Oliver’s sardonically sweet, grimly optimistic work makes me break out in sweat. I love it, like the way the tree loves the axe! ” – Stacy Makishi (Performance Artist)

Mawaan Rizwan

Mawaan is an actor, writer and comedian. He’s written for the New York Times and his comedy videos on YouTube have amassed over 18 million views. Mawaan has also supported Simon Amstell on tour with his unique hybrid of confessional stand-up and skilful physicality.

‘…one of those performers who is simply bursting with so much energy and charisma he is impossible to dislike.’ Beyond the Joke

Vijay Patel

Vijay Patel will present Asperger’s Question Time. A space where you (the audience) will be able to ask him any questions you like, any questions on your mind, think everyday, not any questions about his Asperger’s. He will have some things in place for his access, such as a respite, some care in case he might leave.

IndoorGoblin

‘A solo project performed on keyboard, IndoorGoblin hopes to present the imagination clouds through a mixture of musical creations, combining spoken word with story-singing, hypnotic piano loops and glittery glockenspiel melodies.’

Don Biswas

Award winning ‘left wing conspiracy theorist with dyspraxia!‘ Twice winner of the London Comedy Store Gong Show.

On the surface Don Biswas is a straightforward and old fashioned gag merchant. However, he also talks about having dyspraxia and mild asperger’s syndrome. Also thrown into the mix is politics, interwoven with conspiracy theories, for that extra punch!”

Khia Spencer

Khia is a dancer and artist who has been identified with dyspraxic mind and ADD…

With movement and voice, I’d like to provide an opportunity for myself and a body of witnesses to enter a non intellectual, sensory space where we meet from my experience to theirs without words.
