Cones is the solo show about vision loss and dis/ability passing that I created for my MFA Practicum. Dis/ability has long been a running undercurrent in my work, and this was the first piece I'd made to address it more explicitly. The show's title refers to a retinal condition that runs in my family.
While making the show I blogged about dis/ability performance, including how blindness shows up in theatre, film and song as well as in daily life. Read it here.
Just before to its debut, NPR station WHYY ran this radio piece about Cones.
Cones was a keynote performance for Temple University's Institute on Disabilities, at Goddard College, Cabrini University, Episcopal Academy, and for the New Jersey Commision for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
