Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers
Society in Edmonton
We are an Edmonton-based collective of artists that include people who experience disability and their allies. We try to challenge dominant stories of disability and other forms of oppression, through high-quality crip and mad art.
We run three programs:
Why Crip and Mad Art?
Crip and mad aesthetics involve celebrating and exploring the generative possibilities of 'disability' and 'mental illness,' in terms of how these experiences can offer important alternative perspectives on art processes, form, and content.

CRIPSiE and mindhive collective cordially invite you to a celebration of love, disability, and difference, to raise a toast to the end of perfection. Your presence is requested at this humorous and powerful show that brazenly celebrates love in its many forms by challenging social expectations and turning wedding rituals on their head – but not without a fight on their part. Come as you are and be a part of Love in the Margins, the first professional presentation of CRIP theatre in Edmonton!

CHOREOGRAPHY AND COMPOSITION PROGRAM
From November 2015 to April 2016, CRIPSiE will support three emerging choreographers to create a short piece of integrated dance choreography. CRIPSiE will provide rehearsal space, dancers and mentorship. To train as a choreographer this year, you must attend CRIPSiE company classes, show commitment to the program and be able to give and receive feedback. In addition, potential choreographers must submit a short description of the piece they would like to create to Kelsie Acton (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 31st, 2015. If writing is not your strength, you can share your idea for your piece through art or setting up a meeting to discuss it.
