Created by neurodiverse artist, Gold Akanbi, The Misunderstandings of the Other Side will examine the communication difficulties faced by atypical people in a neurotypical world.

Using a fusion of performance art, spoken word, visual art, greenscreen effects, music and animation, this multi-sensory piece will attempt to represent neurodiversity, and most specifically, the experiences of women of colour living with autism.

The Misunderstandings of the Other Side will be available on recurring dates throughout the festival, from November 27 until December 13.
