Part of Gathered Together, a four-day festival of performance from some of the world’s leading inclusive dance organisations, presented by Indepen-dance.

Wee Man is accompanied by a sound score by composer Luke Sutherland and text created with the poet Kevin P. Gilday.

The troop holds
Cradles brotherhood
In calloused hands
Absorbs transgression
Forgives everything but individuality
Dismisses the traumatic
With a pat on the back
