Movement explored via CreateAbility's No Hands

Mixed ability theatre group CreateAbility will perform No Hands at The Cube Wodonga this week.

Featuring performers with intellectual and physical disabilities, No Hands is based on a 1940s story titled The Diver by Isak Dinesen. It tells the story about a young man obsessed with flight and angels.

CreateAbility's John Willis said No Hands cast and crew first performed the show in Melbourne and received fantastic feedback.

The cast have been rehearsing every Wednesday for a couple of months after last performing No Hands early last year.

"We have been working hard, especially since we are rehearsing for another show as well," Mr Willis said.

"We had our final, full dress rehearsal on Wednesday and everyone seems to be remembering their roles. It's been over a year since our last performance (of No Hands)."

Mr Willis said the show had rich imagery and tapped in to the thought that people can be different and finding your place in the world.

"People have said that it's quite dramatic and that what we have created is visually rich," he said.

"It's also quite an emotional journey with amazing music that transports you."

Wodonga's Eliza Hull composed the music for No Hands and performs as part of the show.

As part of the tour to Wodonga, CreateAbility ran a free public workshop offering an insight to its inclusive approach to devising performances.

Tickets are available to the show.
