‘Creating accessibility programming benefits everyone’

Everything is different as the performing arts world feels its way back into being together and breathing the same air, but in a way that won’t infect and kill each other.

As everyone hopes to be headed toward a post-pandemic world, the question of accessibility, of finding a way to bring everyone—and not just select groups—together continues to be asked and answered in new ways.

A.B.L.E. Ensemble’s goal is to provide performing arts experiences for people with Down syndrome and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. With an acronym standing for Artists Breaking Limits and Expectations, the ensemble had to think carefully about the needs of its participants this year, needs that they recognize have grown in intensity because of years of isolation. 

This spring, they have four ensembles serving a total of 35 actors ages 16-52.
