Reverse Cascade tells the story of Judy Finelli, a circus artist and a juggler whose entire life changed with a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). While doing the job she loves, the artist finds that her body is betraying her and struggles to figure out what is happening to her until she is finally diagnosed with MS. As the disease progresses, it takes the control of her body away from her and everything changes. Her job and identity as an artist is taken away from her. She becomes depressed. But the circus calls her back and it lifts her spirit. Showing the artist new life of the artist, physically hindered but free in her dreams and thoughts, from her wheelchair with object theatre technique and live music, the performance aims to increase your awareness of the MS disease through the elegant display of art.
