"Sins Invalid"

Film screening, discussion, and book launch with Petra Kuppers

Sins Invalid Sins Invalid
U-M Professor Petra Kuppers will introduce the film, including a short reading from her new book "Theatre & Disability," followed by the film screening, open discussion, and a book signing.

This 33-minute documentary explores Sins Invalid, 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. The performance work explores the themes of sexuality, embodiment and the disabled body. Conceived and led by disabled people of color, they 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. "Sins Invalid" is as an entryway into the absurdly taboo topic of sexuality and disability, manifesting a new paradigm of disability justice.

Petra Kuppers, U-M professor of English language and literature, women's studies, art, and theater and drama, is a community performance artist and a disability culture activist.
