"I became a paraplegic at age 24. I went to the theatre and concerts for a few years. I was young and was willing to overcome the barriers with help from my friends. Going up and down stairs. Going in through backdoors, through the backstage or going through a kitchen in order to get to the main hall. I can remember being perched at a height of some two metres on top of a box at a Fura dels Baus show, lifted by hand. It was really a lot of work, not to mention humiliating, to attend these inaccessible shows. I eventually stopped attending them. I don’t know if it was because I decided to no longer accept discrimination, if it was because I no longer hung around with a group of friends, or if it was because I just got tired of it."
