Heather Pickering (Project Director: February 2017 to present)

Flutter Productions

Performances and facilitated discussions that probe the history and culture of people with disabilities through the disciplinary lens of disability studies.

Black Hills Works (BHW) is establishing the national award-winning Flutter Productions as an ongoing program. Mission: Creating opportunities for all performers to soar, challenging the perception of people with disabilities; while creating a new creative community in which performers with and without disabilities come together to create works that celebrate the human spirit. We create an original narrative, for performers of all ages and abilities, based in theater and contemporary dance. Pyroductions are adjusted and tailored to highlight the talents of our performers. Following the performances, we plan to conduct facilitated conversations that are led by the Center for Disabilities, University of South Dakota, with members of the audience as well as participants with and without disabilities and volunteers. These conversations will explore the contributions, experiences, history, and culture of people with disabilities and will identify how disability is represented in society.
