12-11-2013 12:00:00 17-11-2013 12:00:00 America/New_York Jerome Bel and Theater Hora - Disabled Theater Choreographer Jerome Bel's Disabled Theater is a collaboration between Bel and 11 actors from Zurich's Theater Hora, Switzerland's best-known professional theater company comprised of actors with learning and mental disabilities. With Disabled Theater, Bel opens up a space where disability is not expelled from visual and discursive practices, nor hidden behind the screen of political correctness. Instead, he places it squarely at the center of a discourse that has a bearing on both the aesthetic and political dimensions. Sparking both debate and praise across Europe, the work was a sensation at Documenta 13. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=139355 New York Live Arts New York Live Arts
