Devil’s Advocates - ART CULTURE DISABILITY PROJECT - Chicago Free Performance June 5th

ACCESS LIVING and BODIES OF WORK invite you to enjoy an evening of sparkling wit and audacious humor with two of the disability community’s most celebrated storytellers, TEKKI LOMNICKI and MIKE ERVIN. They’ll make you laugh, they may even make you cry, but they’ll always make you think. Mike spins the adventurous tales from his blog “The Smart Ass Cripple,” and Tekki presents her new, one-woman solo performance “Speak of the Devil.” 
Tekki Lomnicki is the Artistic Director of Tellin' Tales Theatre, a not-for-profit company whose mission is to shatter barriers between the disabled and able-bodied worlds through the transformative power of story. She has performed her solo works throughout the US and Canada.
Mike Ervin is a writer and disability rights activist with many years of experience as a cultural administrator at Victory Gardens Theatre where he presents Crip Slam, a series of performances, readings, movies and other events that promote, explore and celebrate disability culture.

Snacks and Sign Language Interpreters and narrative description will be provided. This event is accessible for wheelchair users and those who want to avoid stairs. Please refrain from wearing scented products.
