Kris: The Power of Support – Free Documentary Film Premiere
We all need it – but what is the power of support?
Kris Saunders-Stowe is the incredible human with a story that is inspiring, empowering and deserves to be seen by so many. Kris was at rock bottom, battling a variety of health issues and coming to terms with a physical disability, until he found a support network, that for the first time, allowed him to find empowerment in his disability.
Through the kind generosity of the Courtyard Theatre, Hereford, we are pleased to premiere this short documentary ‘Kris: The Power Of Support,’ that tells his powerful story. The story follows Kris and his husband as they prepare, with the participants of ‘Wheely Good Fitness’ to go to the Superhero Paratriathlon.
Following the film, the audience will have the opportunity to speak to Kris and the film’s producer Jamie Wareham, with a Q&A session. The event will close with a dance performance from Kris of Act 1 of ‘Wishing to die; dying to live’, a 3 Act dance piece that tells the story of his journey through despair and loneliness, to where he is today.
Guests are invited to join one another socially in the theatre’s Cafe Bar afterwards, where a wide variety of cakes, snacks and drinks are always available to purchase.
We hope, just as Kris has changed the lives and empowered all those in his local community with the classes through ‘Wheely Good Fitness’ this documentary can empower LGBT+, disabled and all people around the world. Demonstrating how powerful and life changing support in it’s many forms can be.
