“Walking On Spectrum, a funny and eye-opening glimpse into life with autism by the online globetrotting comedian and spoken word poet, Juliana Heng. If you are curious or you know somebody who walks on the spectrum, check out their show and support the arts. I watched it during the first run on The ADELAIDE FRINGE View 2020 in May 2020 and was blown away by their work.
