What Happened to You?

Hosted by The Disability Collective

Location

Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgman Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5R 1V9, Canada

The Disability Collective is thrilled to announce our first in-person event - a children’s theatre show titled What Happened to You?. Join us at Tarragon Theatre on Saturday, August 20th & Sunday, August 21st for the Toronto premiere of this groundbreaking work!

What Happened to You? is a new, heart-warming piece of puppet theatre for children and their families. Created semi-autobiographically, puppet designer Nikki Charlesworth challenges the fundamental laws of traditional puppetry by making puppets that reflect her own disability, and moves as she moves. What Happened to You? also features creative use of Audio Description, embedded into the original score, and integrated American Sign Language by a Deaf actor, which introduces children to enhanced access. Originally performed in the UK, we’re thrilled to be bringing this show to Toronto this summer.

Join us before the show for a complimentary puppet-making workshop with What Happened to You?'s director and designer, Nikki Charlesworth! During this 45 minute workshop, you will learn about basic puppetry and create your own puppet using found materials - you can bring your own from home! Plus, meet the cast and puppets from What Happened to You? up close!

Organizations

The Disability Collective

The Disability Collective is a community of disabled artists dedicated to celebrating and showcasing disability in the arts. TDC strives to de-stigmatize disability and challenge perceptions of what disability looks like through promoting disabled artists in a variety of forms, including live performances, virtual showcases, visual art shows, readings, and more. We believe that disability can be defined in many ways, including physical impairments, mental health conditions, emotional disabilities, sensory disabilities, cognitive​ challenges, and chronic illnesses.
