If there is a new normal, everyone's crazy and nobody's ill.

An epic narrative of vast and imperfect comedic proportions, A Normal Child navigates the intricacies of disability representation in a daring, funny, and complex work.

Examining the right to begin and end life from the perspective of the disability sector. The show tackles issues of euthanasia, sex, abortion and IVF through an absurdist comedy lens.

Led by self-nominated 'noddies' and 'masters of the absurd', co-Artistic Directors of Ridiculusmus, David Woods and Jonathan Haynes, and featuring the Disability Slapstick Plan, an ensemble of four Melbourne artists with different physical abilities.

Three sisters gather together after many years apart. One of them is dying.

In this complex world, old patterns of behaviour play out, old wounds are re-exposed and ultimately, a new reality where three becomes two must be found.

Created in collaboration with internationally celebrated artist Kyoko Imazu, singer-songwriter Susannah Espie and Lemony S Puppet Theatre, Taking the Waters is a visually stunning, aching and humorous examination of the absurdity of life and death.

This new work from Lemony S Puppet Theatre combines live performance, sung voice, bunraku puppets and object theatre with stunning and multi-layered shadow scenes.
