“Other Side Through You [is a] bold acknowledgement of difference.” - Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
Other Side Through You is a charged, theatrical blending of fact and fiction that wrestles with the science and spirit behind communication.
Cat Main's sister has cerebral palsy and "talks" with an alphabet board. With the help of a facilitator who holds her arms Cat's sister points to letters on the board to spell out what she wants to say. The problem…not everyone believes her sister is the one communicating.
On a quest for the truth Cat talks to world famous skeptics, family members, top researchers & speech pathologists. Using verbatim text from these interviews Other Side Through You takes us on a journey that explodes the personal into the political and immerses the audience in a dialogue on what constitutes real and authentic communication between any individuals.
