Deaf-Accessibility for Spoonies: Lessons from Touring "Eve and Mary Are Having Coffee" While Chronically Ill
Barokka (Okka), Khairani
Research in Drama Education, v22 n3 p387-392 2017
This article presents lessons from touring a show on pain with limited resources and in chronic pain. In 2014, I toured solo deaf-accessible poetry/art show "Eve and Mary Are Having Coffee" in various forms in the UK, Austria, and India. As an Indonesian woman with then-extreme chronic pain and fatigue, herein are lessons learned from harsh difficulties and successes in making a show accessible to some disability cultures, whilst struggling with one's own. Examined are intersections of accessibility, and framing of disabled performers from non-Western backgrounds in Western contexts. Audiovisual media from the tour is included.
