AXIS Dance Company will be joining Dance/NYC for a series of conversations at the intersection of disability and dance. Each event pairs a New York City dance leader with an (inter)national guest working at this nexus. Our goal is to forge a place for disabled artists/artistry in New York's cultural ecosystem, a place where disabled artists can flourish. We invite you to work with us to create new places for disabled artists in NYC's cultural landscape.
In the series kick-off, they will explore dance making and artistry with internationally renowned integrated dance choreographer and AXIS Guest Artistic Director Marc Brew and dance pioneer Dianne McIntyre. They will explore such questions as: Who gets to dance? Where do dancers dance? How does disability and other aspects of identity affect where dancers get to dance? The town hall will be moderated by DDA (Inter)national Voices Curator Simi Linton.
