This is about being normal. This is about being different. This is about making aeroplanes. This is about us.
A group of teenagers ask - What makes you different?
Created and performed by pupils at Ganton School Wired Differently investigates school, socialising and growing up with a learning disability through this site-specific celebration of diversity.
Wired Differently was performed as part of the Hull 2017 City of Culture Programme at Ganton School. The performance was live streamed, with screenings in Libraries across Hull.

‘Funny and honest and spirited and wise. Made my day. Actually, it made my year.’
Wired Differently was performed at Ganton School, a secondary school for young people with a Learning Disability. Every performance was relaxed - the audience area was well lit, it was ok to come, go and make noise if you needed to.
Wired Differently was performed on 28th June 2017 with 2 performances, one for pupils and staff at Ganton School, one for the general public. The public performance was live streamed through youtube, in association with Pilot Theatre, with screenings in Libraries across Hull, in association with Untold Hull.
