"Produce" at the Castlemaine State Festival

My sister Sarah (above) is part of an amazing drama group. The members of Creatability  have varied physical and intellectual disabilities. What is more important are their varied abilities. They can act, write, dance and sing. Together with the help of three impressively energetic actors that are collectively called "Born in a Taxi" the Creatability gang is putting on a show as part of the Castlemaine State Festival.

I have been filming the rehearsal process for the past 6 weeks and can't tell you enough about how impressed I am with the compassion and insight that Nick, Penny and Caro from Born In a Taxi have expressed through their work. If you are heading up that way this weekend - check out the free performance. To describe it as surreal is an understatement! It's also moving and inspiring. I get goosebumps watching the rehearsal and tears fill my eyes when I see how strengthening the experience is for all involved.
