A sister's personal account of growing up with a disabled autistic brother can be seen in Dorchester on Sunday, June 24 at 7.30pm.

He Ain’t Heavy is the debut show of Oddly Moving, a new circus theatre company set up by Grania Pickard. It tells the story of Grania growing up with her disabled autistic brother 'Sean'.

Through physical theatre, aerial circus, audience interaction, storytelling and puppetry the audience see how Sean walks, talks and interacts with the world as well as how his unique take on life has shaped Grania.

Grania said: "When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain't Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways."

The show reaches out to other siblings of people with special needs and autism and gives an insight into some of Grania's experiences for those who don't know someone with special needs.
