Lauren Watson is a Gold Coast-based adaptive performing artist and aerial instructor specialising in aerial, circus, physical theatre and improvised movement. As an artist with a disability, her body of work examines concepts that surround (dis)ableism, identity, personal experiences and pushing the limits to what the physical body can do.

Through her holistic practice, active listening, and celebration of diversity, she is inspired by how all bodies in space weave their own life’s tapestry and how this act or state of vulnerability dictates our communal environments and growth. Storytelling is intrinsic to growth, from our saddest experiences to optimum rejoicing, we have always changed the world with our storytelling. I am devoted to seeing change in this current climate.
