5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join the Chicago screening party of Sins Invalid’s Birthing, Dying, Becoming Crip Wisdom!

Birthing, Dying, Becoming Crip Wisdom! is the Sins Invalid’s 2016 performance. The performance was sold out to an audience of 800 people, and since then, many people have requested to view the performance online. Now is YOUR chance!

In Birthing, Dying, Becoming Crip Wisdom thirteen artists bring evocative explorations of creation, aging, and mortality, a journey through genesis, transformative power, and earth. The resulting work plunges us into visions of life and death, the disabled body/mind, and liberation.

Artists include Aurora Levins MoralesAntoine Hunter and the Urban Jazz Dance Company, Nomy LammLeah Lakshmi Piepzna-SamarasinhaE.T. RussianNeve MaziqueMalcolm ShanksMaria R PalaciosIndia HarvilleLateef McLeod,Christopher Sean, Todd Herman, Patricia Berne, & Kele Nitoto and Band.

Sins Invalid’s mission statement

Sins Invalid is a performance project that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists as communities who have been historically marginalized. Conceived and led by disabled people of color, we develop and present cutting-edge work where normative paradigms of “normal” and “sexy” are challenged, offering instead a vision of beauty and sexuality inclusive of all individuals and communities.
