Making Senses

Six actors portray six women with disabilities in Sweden and Palestine living under drastically different conditions. The characters represent women from a variety of ages and their stories.

The one whose life suddenly got color when she became blind. The one whose husband came home on her birthday and told her he had someone else. The one who was supposed to never leave the house. The one who thinks the funniest thing in the world is when people tripp over and hurt themselves. The one who spent her whole adolescence swimming. The one who people think are lying about being deaf because she loves to dance.

“Making Senses” is a play based on interviews with women with different disabilities, diverse cultural backgrounds, ages and identities from Palestine and Sweden. A funny, sad and deviating play presented in four languages, full of stories with different perspectives we usually do not meet on theater stage. The play addresses issues of gender and disability in both cultural contexts.
