The word ‘jolt’ can mean shocking someone or something into change. And change is something that drives Christchurch-based dance company Jolt.
“We need to challenge this whole deficit view of disability,” says Artistic Director Lyn Cotton. “We need to see people as individuals with their own unique way of moving and thinking.”
Jolt is an inclusive dance company made up of people with intellectual disabilities. It was founded by Lyn in 2001.
