Within Sight - CANCELLED

About Within Sight - CANCELLED

Our protagonist is ‘an inspiration’, ‘so brave’, and tired of hearing about it. Growing up with albinism, she’s learned to ignore the abuse that our ableist society throws at her. She has always derived worth from her independence and athletic prowess. After receiving news she’s narrowly missed out on making the Paralympics team, she goes on a run to clear her head.

Reflecting on the relationships between her body, her senses, and her sport, she untangles the ways in which she has internalised the expectation society puts on disabled people. Ellen Renton’s new solo spoken word theatre show is a one-woman performance about running, the Paralympics, and disability. The multimedia piece is based on Ellen’s personal experience of living with albinism, and addresses ableism within our society. Tokenism, access barriers and inspiration porn are dissected in Ellen’s soft spoken but hard hitting poetry.
