About Anastasis Theatre Co.
We would like to invite you to our next Theatrical experience. We will premier Disability is Not a Dirty Word, an original online play that explores the multi-faceted experience of living with a disability. This new production was created and is performed by a diverse group of disabled people and explores the broad experiences of disabled identity. The play was written using story circles, allowing disabled participants to express their frustrations in a society designed primarily for non-disabled people. The online performance will explore the characters’ experiences of ableism and the need for equitable access. Each character demonstrates the need to be viewed as a whole person, not a broken person.
After each performance, the audience will be invited to engage in a community conversation about the issues presented in the play and what disability justice is.
