Angela Alves is a disabled performer that doesn’t want to be included, nor participate and least of all she wants to keep up with others. She agitates for a culture of equality, where no one must be included, because no one is excluded. In Clown Adapt she’s not asking for contribution, but calls for surrender, self-care and rebellion – in the matter of accessibility and humanity.
