LOL My DYSpraxis
Yo, yo! Happy New Year! We’re joined by DJ DYScourse, aka dance artist Aby Watson to chat about neurodivergence, academia, and spacehoppers as praxis. Aby is a PhD researcher at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, her practice-based research embraces her dyslexia/dyspraxia/ADHD to challenge the neuronormativity of dance culture and wider academic structures. She is the founder of the Scottish Neurodiverse Performance Network and her solo work has been seen across the UK and internationally at various venues, including the Southbank Centre (London), Sophiensaele (Berlin), Tramway (Glasgow) and the Millennium Centre (Cardiff).
NOTE: To respect, give a platform to, and celebrate neurodiverse modes of expression, we have not edited any tangents or moments of processing from the episode.
Aby is DJing a virtual neurodivergent-led DYSco as DJ DYScourse through the Southbank Centre on 16th January, find out more here.
