Details

Adam Pownall woke up to find his bode was slowly shutting down and nobody knew why...

When Guillain Barré Syndrome affected Adam it caused paralysis within days. Getting Better Slowly tells his story of confronting illness through new writing, sound and movement.

How does it feel when your closet relationship is with the illness that's holding you back? Adam's frank and moving account of how he dealt with GBS and the two years he spent recovering - including months spent learning how to walk and talk again - explores the relationship we all have with our bodies and our health. Telling his story with warmth, humour and honesty, and explaining how GBS is still part of his life, he invites audiences to consider how they would deal with an unexpected illness or accident affecting them or someone they love.
