Holly, a dyspraxic living in this neurotypical world. Expect joy, frustration and some exaggerated arm movements.
This is a show about me, Holly, a dyspraxic living in this neurotypical world. Expect some joy, some frustration, and rather a lot of exaggerated arm movements. You may even find out what dyspraxia actually is, well for me anyway.
Flappy is an autobiographical show developed and performed by Holly Clark. It explores what Dyspraxia is and what it means to be Holly, the challenges of living in a society that disables, as well as acceptance and celebration of being dyspraxic, neurodivergent and disabled.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
