A new piece of physical theatre exploring the relationship between identity and appearance will be performed at the Shoebox Theatre in Swindon on Friday. (27)

Devised by O&O and directed by Igne Barkauskalte, The Way I Look tells the stories and struggles of people who live with facial differences, how they define themselves and carve their own journey into the world. Energetic and bold, it is a story for anyone who has ever felt different.

O&O is a theatre ensemble with an ethos of collaboration and engagement. Their performance is based on the written testimonies of people who live with facial differences and it aims to challenge people’s thinking, and to encourage a conversation about how to approach the subject with kindness and consideration.

Support network Let’s Face It, an organisation for survivors of facial cancer and other facial injuries, is supporting the production. Changing Faces, a charity that campaigns for facial equality, and the Centre for Appearance Research, are also involved.

The performance, suitable for ages 14 plus, starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £10. To book, visit shoeboxtheatre.org.uk.
