Commissioned by the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University with Center support, A Fierce Kind of Love is a new play by theater artists Suli Holum and David Bradley. Recounting the history of Pennsylvania's intellectual disability right activists, this new work uses word, movement, and song to reveal how past activism has informed present-day issues. The premiere of A Fierce Kind of Love will include a cast of intellectually disabled performers.
