Crip Ecstasy is an immersive nightlife experience that centers accessibility from the ground up. Working with a cast of disabled performance artists, DJs, ASL Interpreters and Audio Describers, this installation transforms CounterPulse into an environment where multiple forms of access intersect to conjure a new blueprint for what a club space can be.
