Harvard local offers “Faust” as disabled woman:
Working with Denver’s handicapped theater company PHAMALy changed Charlie Miller’s life from the day he first volunteered in 2003. Assisting special-needs actor Aaron Rendoff backstage. Helping blind thesp Don Mauck apply his makeup.
Now Miller, 22, wants to use those PHAMALy-informed experiences to change the American theater.
Miller, a 2004 Colorado Academy grad, is now a senior at Harvard, where on April 9 he will debut “username: FAUST,” his multimedia variation on the infamous soul-selling legend, only this time focusing on people with disabilities ranging from blindness to bipolar disorder.
The arts is getting very big in the disability field, i recently came across a deaf theatre group called ‘Signdance’ basically does what the name sez but it totally amazed me and i’m not usually an arty person.
Hrmmm … that has a lot of potential!
Wow. Wish I weren’t going to be out of town.
