Sexability by Thikwa Werkstatt für Theater und Kunst (Workshop for Theatre and Art) nbw gGmbH

Sexability deals with the diversity and reality of sexuality from the perspective of people with so-called disabilities as a contribution to an inclusive society. In an artistic creation process of people with and without disabilities, an animated film is created that informs, explains and breaks down social taboos in a sensitive way.

“The project approaches a reserved subject with great sensitivity. Sexability finds ways to break taboos and myths related to the sexuality of disabled people. As an artistic medium, the animated film is suited to deal with the topic in an artistically and qualitative manner – visual and informative, without being exposing. An important project that makes an essential contribution to participation and inclusion”, says the jury.
