In history, disability has often occupied the liminal space between the human and monstrous and animalistic. What does it mean to give into that cross-species affinity, and to explore mutual ways of being and moving in space? Nina Mühlemann and Edwin Ramirez present the second episode of Criptonite, a new crip-queer series of events that focuses on artists with disabilities and creates an accessible, relaxed, and fantastic utopia.
Our second edition embraces slow animals, from the snail to the gila monster, as a way of challenging notions of productivity and efficiency. Join us as we enter the realm of dreams and surrender to slowness, shapeshifting and forms of intimacy outside the (human) norm. In true Criptonite fashion, there will be pop songs, dark humour and an abundance of gorgeous two-toed sloths.
With and by Edwin Ramirez, Nina Mühlemann, Alessandro Schiattarella, Christina Heer, Paloma Ayala, Tanja Erhart
