It’s about mind-chatter. It’s about silencing and surrendering. It’s about reasoning with and raging against yourself. It’s about breaking things and breaking free.
The new Women’s Ensemble with No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability (NSA) proudly performs their first self-devised work, every day for a week at 11am.
NSA produces professional theatre by people with a disability, combating stereotypes while demonstrating that (often) the only real difference between artists with and without disability is opportunity.
We create original theatre through the unique perspectives of our performers. We produce locally, tour nationally and discover new talent in weekly workshops tailored to the individual needs of participants. All live with at least one disability and one quarter are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage. Everyone is welcome.
Over our 21-year history, we’ve employed dozens of professional artists as tutors, directors, playwrights, designers and technicians, while creating an ever-growing core of performers and board members who live with disability.
The Hon Kelly Vincent is NSA’s Patron. In a recent speech she confessed,
"I'm a big believer in the arts because it gives a voice to so many who are denied their voice. We as a society often focus on the presumed incapacity of people with disabilities rather than asking us what our capacities are, and respecting those capacities as a platform to develop. No Strings Attached gives a voice to those experiences that we might not otherwise hear."
