If the world of live entertainment is able to cooperate in influencing representations of the body and determining working conditions, what tactics can it adopt to break up that discursive and systemic universe based on the hegemonic model of the able bodied white man?
In a system of narratives built on so called “enabled” people, how do we realize what is missing? What perspectives do we adopt to name disabilities on stage? How can we create conditions of study and professional training for artists with disabilities? How can we create places of culture and creative experiences that are accessible to all? How can we remove the barriers that limit participation?
Short Theatre proposes a shared reflection with cultural operators and curators, activists and artists, on the accessibility of contemporary arts to shed light on issues related to disabilities and neurodivergence with the aim of discrediting beliefs and prejudices dictated by the ableist agenda and to do so with interventions from experts and with testimonials.
Marta Agopar for the St. Alexis Institute, which focuses on Clinical Dance Therapy, will take part.
