The past few months have forced us to stop and think about the relationship between health, body, and Switzerland. What myths and stories about disability do we have in our heads? Nina Mühlemann and Edwin Ramirez present the first episode of Criptonite, a new crip-queer series of events that focuses on artists with disabilities and creates an accessible, relaxed, and fantastic utopia.
In the first episode Nina Mühlemann and Edwin Ramirez deal with Swissness, Alpine air, and ableism and a story that combines all of these: Johanna Spyri's children's book Heidi. In a crip-queer feminist retelling of this classic with ableism bingo, ASMR recording, and stand-up inserts, they try to debunk Swiss myths and prejudices about bodies outside the norm besides giving you a crash course in Allyship and the history of the Swiss disability movement.
The event will be followed by a premiere party with Chienne de Garde.
There are various sitting and lying possibilities. There is the possibility for a relaxed entry to the north wing, in order to choose the most suitable seating option according to individual needs. The relaxed entry begins at 20.30 hours. Please register in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
