“DESCENT models a truth rarely understood among dance audiences: Disability does not signify incompleteness.”
–Kevin Gotkin, Dance Magazine
From the imagination of disability arts innovator Alice Sheppard, and in collaboration with the artists from the collective Kinetic Light, DESCENT presents a thrilling experience— the release of leaning into a descent.
Performed on an architecture ramp installation with slopes, curves and peaks comer descent celebrates the pleasure of reckless abandon. It reimagines the Rodin sculpture of Greek mythological figure Andromeda and Venus on wheels flying, within inches of the ramp’s edges.
