A Fierce Kind of Love (Philadelphia)


A Fierce Kind of Love. (Liz Green: Community Engagement Consultant) A Fierce Kind of Love (AFKOL) tells the untold stories of Pennsylvania's Intellectual Disability Rights Movement. Written by Obie-nominated theater artist Suli Holum, and directed by David Bradley, AFKOL expresses the Movement's layered history and the very human passions and bonds that underlie it. Informed by historical research and Visionary Voices oral history interviews, guided by ongoing discussion with people with disabilities and their families, and featuring an ensemble of actors of all abilities, AFKOL models the Institute's value of inclusive practice by working with people with disabilities and families as first person sources and makers of creative content.
