One of the objectives of Disabled Theater is to encourage us to question our notions of ability, power and visibility.
Jérôme Bel’s production aims to take a hands-off approach—”to step back and let them have their freedom.” But how can an artist or advocate who is not disabled facilitate work from the perspectives of artists who are—without her or his own perspective taking over? Join Scholar-in-Residence Matthew Sergi, with guest respondent Ara Glenn-Johanson (a specialist in developmental disability’s representation in theatre), for a provocative and open pre-show tea and debate—in which we aerate some of the tough questions that Bel’s bold work must raise.
