*A Fierce Kind of Love
A cast of artists with and without disabilities chronicles the largely
untold story of Pennsylvania’s Intellectual Disability Rights Movement in a
remount of this deeply poignant work. Drawing from years of research and
the performers’ lived experiences, *A Fierce Kind of Love* combines text,
movement, and song to chart the Movement’s remarkable history and celebrate
the struggle, activism, and fierce love that fuels the desire for dignity.
This new iteration of the piece expands on the interviews and research
conducted for the 2016 premiere, adding insight to the persistent issues in
the disability community.
The show, set, and theatrical environment for *A Fierce Kind of Love* are
completely accessible; ASL interpretation and open captioning are directly
integrated into the piece; all performances will be sensory-friendly, audio
described and programs will be available in alternate formats.
Complimentary companion seats are available to patrons who require a paid
Personal Care Attendant (PCA). Please contact the box office directly to
reserve a PCA ticket.
