The organiser says:
When Kaiya Stone turned 20 she was diagnosed with dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ADHD. With a combination of storytelling, character comedy, and projections, Everything is Going to be KO creates a richly layered sensory world that imitates the complex matter of how we think and learn. A joyous and charming celebration of neurodiversity.
Learning difficulties are sometimes presented as a politically correct way to talk about stupidity. As Kaiya reflects on how this diagnosis has impacted on her life, from childhood to adulthood, she challenges this notion, examining the way we are 'supposed' to think and demanding that we do better for everyone. Supported by the Old Vic New Voices scheme.
“I began making the show I needed to see when I was diagnosed just so I didn't feel alone. Now it has become something beyond that, for me, Everything Is Going To Be KO is an intervention into the dearth of theatre containing disabled narratives. "
