Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty in the Face of Invisibility
Join us in celebrating the
5TH ANNUAL SINS INVALID PERFORMANCE
Sins Invalid celebrates the power of embodiment & sexuality, stripping taboos off sexuality and disability to offer a vision of beauty that includes all bodies and communities.
2011 artists include:
Aurora Levins Morales
Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
Leroy F. Moore Jr.
This venue is wheelchair accessible. Please note that the Saturday, April 9th, evening performance will be ASL interpreted by Stage Hands and audio described. Please refrain from using scented products, although we cannot guarantee a scent-free space.
Supported by the generosity of the Aepoch Fund, the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Community Foundation (Boulder), the Carpenter Foundation, the Horizons Foundation, and the Left Tilt Fund.
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 believes in 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.
