Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty in the Face of Invisibility
The Dancing Tree presents -
Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty in the Face of Invisibility.
Sins Invalid invites a re/view of embodiment, with performers stripping taboos off of sexuality and disability. In our third year, this performance event celebrates the sacred in fierce desire and claims all bodies as beautiful.
Artists include Rodney Bell, Nomy Lamm, Leroy Moore, Cara Page, Maria Palacios, Noemi Sohn, and Seeley Quest.
Funding in part provided by:
San Francisco Arts Commission Organizational Project Grant
Conceived and led by disabled people of color, we develop and present performance work where normative paradigms of "sexy" are challenged, offering instead a vision of beauty and sexuality inclusive of all individuals and communities.
Sins Invalid recognizes that we will be liberated as whole beings as disabled/as queer/as brown/as black/as genderqueer/as female or male bodied as we are far greater whole than partitioned. We recognize that our allies emerge from many communities and that demographic identity alone does not determine ones commitment to liberation.
Sins Invalid is social and economic justice for all people with disabilities in lockdowns, in shelters, on the streets, visibly disabled, invisibly disabled, sensory minority, environmentally injured, psychiatric survivors moving beyond individual legal rights to collective human rights.
Our stories, imbedded in analysis, offer paths from identity politics to unity amongst all oppressed people, laying a foundation for a collective claim of liberation and beauty.
