Pushing Limits - Dancing with Cripples

The complex history of the word cripple, methods of inclusion for people with verbal, cognitive, emotional and other discounted disabilities, and the story of a disabled woman powering a diesel truck through the Australian desert.  Plus, excerpts from a steamy love story called Cripple Poetics.

It’s all here as performance artists and poets Neil Marcus, Petra Kuppers and Amber DiPietra join
producer, Adrienne Lauby and audio describer, Lakshmi Fjord.  With music by Mindy Dillard.
