Two landscape photographs in a collage. Both show a dance studio in which the same two people are moving. In the top photograph, one person has their arms outstretched while the other stands still. In the bottom, they reverse, so the opposite person is now dynamic and folder over while the other remains standing.

Aby Watson – Back and Forth and Forth and Back (BFFB)

Back and Forth and Forth and Back (BFFB) is a Relaxed dance performance of joyous and sensual neurodivergent embodiment, as a dyslexic, dyspraxic and ADHD mind-body dances itself into being – and outside of neuronormative values. Through sensory worlds, neurodivergent lived experience bounces, rocks and articulates itself through compositions of dance, image and text – underscored by a groove-inducing soundtrack that’s sure to get everyone moving. Impulsive, energetic, off-kilter and wonderfully weird, BFFB neurodiversifies dance performance by celebrating the joy of moving through the world in a different way.
