Stigma Through the Looking Glass.
The performance is based on elements from “Alice in Wonderland” and incorporates artists’ stories and lived experiences of stigma around disability.
Not wanting to turn a blind eye anymore, “Alice” falls into the rabbit hole with a desire to educate herself on the realities of stigma. Through this experience, Alice hopes to take her learnings back to reality and influence more communication, connection and educate those around her on the unconscious stigma that comes in many forms throughout society.
The performance encourages audience members to delve into a metaphorical “Rabbit Hole” of stigma. The artists have come together in collaboration to promote connections, understanding and sharing of their stories. They are using their performance platform to make their voices heard and their stories told –encouraging audience members to listen and reflect.
