Sometimes I Leave at Colchester Arts Centre
Vijay Patel presents Sometimes I Leave at Colchester Arts Centre.
‘An ode to brains that have been stigmatised in society’
Sometimes I Leave is a new show by Vijay Patel, which takes you on a neurodivergent journey through the process of needing to leave situations. It is fuelled by anxiety, the violence of ‘curing’ (through experimental treatment) and our differently wired brains.
Vijay exploits his almost 20-year experience with Asperger’s syndrome since diagnosis. Through performance art, video and theatre, he repeats and reclaims his own lived experiences. This is a show that smashes the stigma against ‘othered’ brains, that imagines existing in a world that, as opposed to discriminating against unique ways of thinking, celebrates and cares for them.
Pay what you can!
