& Human Liquidation
How is it to live with a physical disability?
With this project we wanted to make people aware of how life is of a man with a disability, which intersects with societal institutions, collective norms and scientific discourse.
Our vision was to empower people with disabilities and raise questions about ethics, normality and the good life. Portraying a life with disability that is full of deep perspectives and complex meanings.
The audience got an insight into Jacob’s everyday struggles and through the award-winning documentary film – Natural Disorder – and the play Humane Liquidation at The Royal Danish Teater. In that way they could relate Jacob’s life to their own struggles of dealing with personal challenges.
