Intangible Adorations Caravan proposes that a portal opened during the last performance of The Icon, Lisa’s mysterious persona, and The Icon has vanished from the space-time continuum. One of The Icon’s followers, The Ringmaster, obsesses over the disappearance, and IAC is their show about bringing The Icon back.
The Mad and disabled artists who perform in IAC reclaim the freak show aspect of the carnival. Our performers invite the audience into a new world, crip universe of wonder that is created by the artists’ imaginations, instead of being viewed as a visual display of difference.
One of IAC’s chief goals is to welcome the Mad, disabled, neurodiverse, Deaf, blind and low vision communities, who will be invited specifically and made to feel welcome with features including the use of headsets to facilitate live audio description, ASL and Deaf interpretation, and the use of multisensory methods to engage a range of the audience’s senses. Audio description and interpretation professionals will be costumed for the performances and integrated with the other performers, so that the audience will see this as a natural, organic whole part of the show.
