Head to Lake Kawana Community Centre on April 13 and 14 to see Kaleidoscope, presented by Company 2, which sheds light on the life of young Brisbane boy Ethan Langridge and his experiences living with Asperger Syndrome. Ethan, a Flipside Circus student, was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at four years of age.

Due to this syndrome, Ethan, who is now 14, perceives the world differently. He prefers to understand the world through touch.

He senses his surroundings with the pads of his fingers or the tips of his toes and he unwittingly invited his mother, Johanna Wharton, to view his world with him.

Johanna describes stepping into Ethan's world like joyfully walking through shafts of colour and light; a dazzling kaleidoscope.

She wrote a book about her experiences with Ethan which inspired the creation of the show.

Kaleidoscope is a work that allows Ethan to express himself through the physical form that he loves - circus.

The show journeys through the ups and downs of everyday life and celebrates the unique spirit of Ethan and young people like him in our community.

Directed by Chelsea McGuffin with the ensemble of Company 2 and Ethan Langridge, this is one Easter holiday show the whole family can enjoy.

So come and view the world through Ethan's eyes with this joyous, poetic performance and explore the great beauty found in the smallest things.

Tickets to the show are just $20 per person or $16 per person for groups of 10+. Performance and workshop $30 per person.

The workshops will take place immediately after the show and are designed for the young at heart to develop their creative thinking, build performing skills as well as rethinking the potential of circus and discovering the circus artists inside us all.

For individual, vacation care group bookings or to book into a workshop, please call Lake Kawana Community Centre on 5413 1400 or visitwww.scvenuesandevents.com.au.

Inspiration and ensemble artist Ethan Langridge

At 11 years of age, Ethan's world is currently a place of wonder, where everything is up for question. Born with Asperger Syndrome and a hearing impairment, Ethan travels through layers of complex dynamics, dealing with enlightened senses and raw emotions, interwoven like delicate fuses. There within is a young boy seeking to be satisfied and whole. Possessing eccentric qualities, Ethan is one of untameable beauty. Kaleidoscope will perform at the Sydney Opera House immediately after the Lake Kawana Community centre.

Review

Sometimes the heart breaks and cracks open because so much love is bursting through. Ethan Langridge
