dis/cinema is hosing a screening of Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty, a performance project that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists. Since 2006, its performances have explored themes of sexuality, beauty, and the disabled body, impacting thousands through live performance. Sins Invalid is as an entryway into the absurdly taboo topic of sexuality and disability, manifesting a new paradigm of disability justice.
This event is facilitated by Dr Kirsty Liddiard, Research Fellow in the School of Education and Co-Leader of the Institute for the Study of the Human (iHuman), University of Sheffield. Kirsty's research explores disability, gender, sexual and intimate citizenship in contemporary dis/ableist cultures.
