We're making a film about Sins Invalid! Find out more.
Sins – The Film
We have reached nearly 4,000 people through live Sins Invalid performances. But we've consistently heard from people who can't make it to the Bay Area that want to experience Sins. We're proud to say that in conjunction with the Aepoch Fund we've almost finished making a 41-minute film that reflects our groundbreaking performance work and weaves interviews of artists and co/founders alongside unreleased performance footage to serve as an entryway into the absurdly taboo topic of sexuality and disability.
This film will magnify our message that ALL people and communities are beautiful and valuable. Imagine how many more lives and communities would change if people engaged in that simple message! And, we still need you to premiere this film!
What We Have and What We Need
We're in the final stages of production. We are committed to completing the film – so committed in fact that we are donating personal resources to move it forward. You know how artists stretch a dollar to make $100 worth of creativity happen. We're stretching but your partnership will premiere this film!
We are raising $15,000 through the online platform Kickstarter. It will help us reach out to new communities – but there's a catch. Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform – so we will receive the funds only if we raise the entire amount.
Your contribution will help lead us through the end stages of film production – sound editing and creating music, correcting the color, adjusting the titles, beginning the distribution launch.
Please share in the truth that beauty always recognizes itself. Be a part of completing a groundbreaking film on disability and sexuality. Visit us at Kickstarter now.
What people say…
The world of enforced and embodied norms constricts all of us, regardless of where we identify on the spectrums of sexuality, gender, or ability. In this project, people with disabilities are engaging in the wholeness of our bodies and our sexualities. Visit us at Kickstarter. When people experience our shows they are deeply impacted:
"I am moved beyond words, moved to an emotional state that I can't quite explain. Thank you for making this space possible!"
— Audience member 2011
"You are brilliant and beautiful and help me remember that so am I. Thank you."
— Audience member 2011
"What makes Sins Invalid so powerful is that it thoroughly succeeds artistically and erotically, separate from the impact of its political message. Sins Invalid challenges its audience to think about sexuality, beauty, and disability in new and expanded ways. But Sins Invalid is also, quite simply, a hot, arousing, sexually charged evening of thought-provoking, imaginative sexual entertainment that only happens to be entirely by and about people with disabilities."
— David Steinberg, SFGate
"One of the most powerful shows I have been to ever. The creativity and expression and depth literally took my breath away."
— Audience member 2009
"Sins Invalid's work is a vibrant necessity in this age of bland complacency. The art that is presented brings the intersectionality of race, gender, class, and ability and throws it in your face, forcing the viewer to come to terms with how these realities are not so different and yet so different for those with disabilities. And this is beautifully done with the erotic and the body."
— Phem Magazine
"Mesmerizing, thought provoking and hypnotic, erotic and humorously joyful, sad, hopeful intense and rebellious."
— audience member 2008
