“Hello, my name is John Aitken. I did not speak until I was seventeen years old.”


“When I think about that boy that did not speak, and that young man that did not speak; I honestly have a hard time understanding how he did it. How he survived each day and each night. At age 47, I am a totally different person. I have been speaking now for 30 years, which is very odd when I stop and think about it.  Performing and writing this piece has helped me heal in a very positive way which was ironically, unforeseen. “

Johnny tells the story of how he came to find his voice, through movement, mask, drum, dance and humour.  A powerful tale of overcoming fears.
