About the Session
What does it mean to explore the actual lives of others? What do we know of disability and how do we write about it? How do we preform disability? Join writer, director, and performer, Terry Galloway in exploring disability in creative writing and performance. In this session participants will spend fifteen minutes writing as frankly as they can about the subject, using as prompts either their experiences with disability or their impressions of disability. Individuals will then create improvised performances around these experiences/impressions exploring influences of both “inspirational” and “monstrous” social models of disability.
