/ Fucking Disabled
A Theater Performance About Passion, Beauty and Encounters Beyond the Norm

FUCKING DISABLED is a collective poetic piece about sex and desire, which was directed by David von Westphalen. The cast: A beautiful woman with an unusual shape and an enchanting voice. A performer with unconventional movement and articulation. A tantric sex worker. And a beautiful, graceful dancer. It is about unfettered pleasure, unnecessary taboos and the joy of sexual freedom. It is about the fact that sexuality with a disability is more normal than people without a disability would think. And that passion can blossom again when that which is normal is no longer normal. It is not a drama, there are no characters, and it is not documentary theater; it is a sensual piece based on the performers’ personalities.
“Of course! We also want sex and we have sex, what did you think?” they declare. Telling their own stories, the four performers of the evening lead us out of the thicket of prejudice right into the realm of eroticism. They use the performance to pave the way which can allow disabled and non-disabled people to live out a liberated sexuality in this society. “We are also desirable and sexy!” they exclaim. But how can you be heard if your speech is also impeded? How do you connect with each other if the customary sequence of seduction and the usual dating rules prove to be useless?
To this effect, the performers provide a protected space for thoughts and perceptions for themselves and the audience, in which tenderness and attraction are made possible. Here, in unvarnished beauty, it is revealed how enjoyable it is not to be restricted by the predefined paths of eroticism. The hybrid combination of poetry, musical theater, performance, scenes and essays enables us to contemplate, feel and experience all of this in a new light at any given time.
