Two Birthdays

This is a conceptual piece on disability, control and the emotional needs of growing up quadriplegic. This is not just one story but a conversation, about defying limitations and wanting to fit in, about being left unnoticed and to have no privacy, about using drugs to stay alive and for feeling alive, about the need for touch and love and sex and to have not physical control of your body or surroundings.

About not giving in and not fitting in.

About being smart and funny and beautiful and trapped.

The music was made specifically for this piece.
