He Ain't Heavy

Oddly Moving’s fantastic new production He Ain't Heavy, produced by Turtle Key Arts, will be coming to Dorchester Arts on Sunday 24 June at 7.30pm.


He Ain’t Heavy is the debut show by Oddly Moving, a new circus theatre company set up by Grania Pickard. He Ain't Heavy tells the story of Grania growing up with her disabled autistic brother "Sean".


Through physical theatre, aerial circus, storytelling and puppetry the audience see how Sean walks, talks and interacts with the world as well as how his unique take on life has shaped Grania.


"When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain't Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways." Grania Pickard


An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love. You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
