Evening event at AccessU
Knowbility is thrilled to announce the evening activity for its annual AccessU conference. The May 14th event will be a mixed ability dance performance with full audio description and sign language interpretation. The Way You Move Your Body was part of the 2013 Cohen New Works Festival presented by the University Co-op of the University of Texas. The piece was created, directed, and is choreographed by Lucy Kerr.
About the dance piece
This mixed-ability dance/theatre piece exposes and dissolves disability prejudices. Both abled-bodied and disabled dancers guide the audience from a dark world of freaks to a joyful world where difference is celebrated. It is an unsettling but eye-opening journey, leaving the audience cringing, laughing, crying, smiling, and questioning the way we conventionally perceive differently-abled people.
Fierce, dynamic, and unconventional movement will emerge from the unique rhythms and capabilities of differently-abled dancers. The journey is augmented by both audacious and touching monologues told by a diverse group of people of various ages, identities, abilities and personal experiences. The group is tied together by a shared passion for dance and a strong bond that has formed over the past eight months of rehearsals. The Way You Move Your Body on tumblr.com
