Disability on Stage: Toward an Aesthetic of Experience

A talk by Brazilian artist Carolina Teixeira

 

“I propose a presentation about my experience as a researcher in Brasil with disabled persons involved in dance and theater,” she says. “I will focus on the creative experience of bodies in a “state of exclusion.” My aim is to mobilize bodies and to propose alternative ways of working and interacting with persons with disabilities, and alternative ways of thinking about the corporal de-colonization of the disabled. The focus of my presentation will be on the aesthetic, political and artistic dimensions central to an understanding of disability.”
