“Walking On Spectrum” is a 25 minutes medley show, exploring different ways to tell one’s life story through comedy, storytelling, and spoken word poetry. Juliana Heng is a stand-up comedian, storyteller, and spoken word poet based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is a developmental disorder that affects social interaction. Juliana experienced challenges when it comes to reading people’s body language, tone of voice, and social cues, very often leading to anxiety in social situations. It is an invisible disability among females / assigned females. Many may go undiagnosed for years as being quiet and shy is an acceptable behavior mode for girls and women. Having ASD does not make one immune to life challenges, why not live life with a spunk? Be prepared to be moved, laugh, and celebrate life with Juliana!
