What is Olimpias?
The Olimpias is an artists'
collective and a performance research series. The artists explore
art/life, cross-genre participatory practices, arts for social change
and disability culture work. Olimpias work addresses its audiences
directly, and engages them gently and with care,. The desire is to create a more
inclusive future together. Please join us for one these two performance scores.
Each score will co-create a ritual experience, a
nourishing re-imagining of memorialisation. The score focuses on the
Peter Eisenman memorial in Germany, and the lawsuits brought on by the
disabled people of Germany who sued for disability access to the site
and lost. We'll approach these topics through doing, together, and
through a sharing circle. Come ready to engage their wisdom.
