Four men stand on stage. They have cerebral palsy. When they were born, doctors called their condition ‘purposeless movements’. For them, it’s just how they move.

Raucously funny and brutally honest, Purposeless Movements is an eye-opening dance theatre work from Glasgow’s Birds of Paradise Theatre Company.

Purposeless Movements is written by Robert Softley Gale, creator of last year’s sell-out My Left / Right Foot — The Musical.
