DESCENT premieres for New York City audiences March 22, 23, 24 2018 at New York Live Arts.
Performed on an architectural ramp installation with hills, curves and peaks, DESCENT celebrates the pleasure of reckless abandon. Obliterating assumptions of what dance, beauty, and disability can be, this evening-length duet takes audiences on a transformative ride. Andromeda and Venus, reimagined as interracial lovers, claim their desire as wheels fly within inches of the ramp’s edges. Their spines soften to taste the subtle pulls of gravity and arch into the sumptuous light.
Featuring Alice Sheppard, Laurel Lawson, and Michael Maag from the collective Kinetic Light.
