Upside Down narrates the story of a young, able-bodied, woman who accidentally enters a world populated by people who dress, act and move in the opposite way; a world that contradicts "normality.” Performed by a cast of actors with disabilities, this production upends the concept of daily life, social-norms, and diversity.
