Title: Staging Accessibility: Collective Stories of Relaxed Performance
Author: Jones, Chelsea Temple; Collins, Kimberlee; Rice, Carla
Abstract: On the premise that performances and writing can be staged, and that no staging is ever innocent, we tell two unresolved, wonder- oriented phenomenological stories of Relaxed Performances (RP) that reveal ‘affective trouble’: the delivery of a ‘cripped’ fashion show at a university and a church-based ‘relaxed’ choir performance. We compose these narratives from the perspectives of eight participants in collaboration across three universities in Ontario, Canada. These RP moments reveal insights into disability arts as an emotive challenge to so-called proper comportment and introduce new, politicised elements of wonder about what it means to strive for accessible performance.
