scosa stars shine at Talent Quest

On Friday 29 June at the Golden Grove Arts Centre, participants from our Hubs across metropolitan and regional South Australia came together to stage a range of theatrical performances incorporating plays, dance routines and interpretations of famous music hits in front of a large and captive audience.

Performability is a scosa event that focuses on showcasing the abilities of people living with disabilities, where scosa participants typically spend three months preparing the props, costumes and routines to some of their favourite songs and dances, which culminated in this big finale event.

scosa Chief Executive, Dorothy Belperio said “From a physical perspective, the dance routines and plays are great for enhancing movement, muscle strength and dexterity. Just as importantly, from a mental health perspective, Performability offers a great opportunity for people living with disabilities to be a part of an inclusive team and participate in a challenging and exciting activity, which helps to enhance their confidence and self-esteem.

Working cohesively as a team on such a fun and vibrant project enables participants to focus on their abilities and showcase their talents to their families, carers and friends.”

“I love Performability. We performed to ‘Despacito’ and I got to spend time with all my scosa friends. I can’t wait until next year!” exclaimed scosa participant Joanna Goumas.

It was a fantastic day had by all and congratulations to all of the Hubs on your wonderful performances.
