Balancing Acts: Calgary's 9th Annual Disability Arts Festival
Explorations of sexuality, masculinity, queerness, race, and disability took the stage through original film and performance work including Meg Torwl's world premiere of That's So Gay; Alan Shain's full production of Time To Put My Socks On; Fred Stenhouse's piece Human Frailty; and James J. Doyle's latest film A Different Breed. For more information about these artists and other work featured at the Festival please click here.
This year's Festival also featured its first juried Visual Art Series including People's Choice Awards for each exhibition in addition to a Best of Show award in both the Traditional and Disability Art categories.
A huge thank you to all of the artists, partners, and audience goers who made Balancing Acts9 a wonderful success and to the funders whose support of the Balancing Acts Commissioning Project has been integral to the flourishing of new work in disability art.
