Theater Production Raises Disability Awareness

The Antiheroes Project will present the original free theater production Fluorescent Moon, on Oct. 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. at Wolfson Campus, 300 N.E. 2nd Ave., at the MDC Live Arts Lab in Room 1101.

The piece marks Disability Awareness Month and deals with the experiences of blind actors and how they traverse their daily lives. It is presented in partnership with the Miami Dade College ACCESS Department (Disability Services)  and the Wolfson Campus’ E3 Club (Engage, Empower, Excel) which advocates for students with special needs.

“The development of the script will be interactive and aims to answer the question: ‘What do the blind see?’” said José M. Domínguez, one of the Antiheroes Project founders. “Lack of understanding and accessibility, the absence of opportunities for Latino blind individuals and the deficiency to engage them in social transformations in our community are the heart of the project.”

The Antiheroes Project, a nonprofit organization formed in 2011, aims to instill an inclusive model and to raise accessibility awareness in the multicultural South Florida Community.

Attendees can park for free at the Wolfson Campus parking garage. For more information on the E3 club and/or the Antiheroes project students can contact José  Domínguez at (305) 237-3544  or jdoming3@mdc.edu
