"Outside the Box/Performing Disability" is an international showcase featuring provocative, exotic and cutting-edge disabled performers.
There has been a seismic shift in disability arts over the last decade, both in form and content. Using unique configurations of body, voice and mind, disabled artists are constructing new art and new art forms.
Mat Fraser, internationally known actor and playwright (Sealboy: Freak, Thalidomide: The Musical) will emcee. Fraser was most recently featured as Puck inThe Kaos Dream, a revisioning of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, which toured Britain last fall, where it enjoyed rave reviews, sold out audiences, complaints from Catholic School teachers and standing ovations.
