As the sky transitions from gold to amber to red, green and blue, Alice Sheppard, a light-skinned Black woman, slides in a spider position on her stomach down the shiny ramp. The shadow of her wheelchair is visible beneath; her curly hair glows. Photo credit: MANCC / Chris Cameron.

Join in a conversation about disability aesthetics and design for performance: learn about Kinetic Light’s work in production, projection, movement, and software design. Laurel Lawson, choreographic collaborator, dancer, designer, and engineer with Kinetic Light will be in conversation with Michael Maag, production, lighting and projection designer for Kinetic Light.

The conversation will include ASL interpretation and captioning.
