Realwheels’ “Wheel Voices” program nurtures and develops emerging talent in the disability community through storytelling and performance. Professional artists unite with participants from the disability community for a series of workshops. Stories are created, developed and enhanced through theatre, music, visual arts and dance, culminating in a live performance. This year’s theme explores sexual identity from the disability perspective with staging inspired by burlesque and cabaret.

Directed by award-winning Rachel Peake with burlesque choreography by Jenny Magenta, SexyVoices is a celebration of everyBODY! This production aims to break down the stigma surrounding sexuality and disability in dazzlingly original and unexpected ways.

Join us after the show for a guided Touch Tour of the lobby display.


“It’s not physical, but attitudinal barriers that are the greatest challenges for people with disabilities. The community-based performance will push boundaries through a series of vignettes by people from their 20s to 70s who self-identify as living with a disability.” –Toronto Star
“The idea of sexual identity is of tremendous importance to the disability community because people with disabilities are often perceived as not having sexual identities or sexual relationships.
Working with award-winning stage director, Rachel Peakes, the SexyVoices cabaret combines storytelling with burlesque. Told through a series of vignettes, including both solo and group pieces, SexyVoices has been designed as a cabaret experience to reveal the diversity within the disabled community.”Vancouver Presents
