Partners in Art is proud to support Tangled Art + Disability’s Intangible Adorations Caravan (IAC) featuring Lisa Anita Wegner and OtherHearts Collective, in association with Tangled Art + Disability.
IAC is an immersive, traveling performance and film experience that fuses carnival with science-fantasy biography, circus, and disability culture. A multi-sensory interactive experience with robust accessibility built into each performance, the show presents a threadbare Victorian Caravan as a deceptive cover for a world of mobile Cinema, aerial wizardry and shared ritual.
When the Caravan rolls into a neighbourhood as darkness falls, mysterious magic will be unleashed in a spectacle suitable for all ages as we attempt to make contact with the Icon, a legendary figure who vanished several years ago. The Caravan appears in unexpected locales, adding the element of surprise; and its disappearance following the performance leaves the attendees with a lingering sense of wonder.
As a mad and disabled artist, Lisa Anita Wegner is committed to the idea of public art that is truly accessible, and to eliminating barriers of poverty and disability that too often get in the way of underserved communities experiencing art. Lisa’s work explores the possibilities of Madness and disability as a source of communal activation; and IAC specifically aims to reclaim the performing caravan not as a site of display, but rather as a site of world-dismantling potentiality.
