About: Join Dance/NYC for a series of conversations about integrated and disability dance artistry. Organized around upcoming New York City metropolitan area performance activity at the nexus of disability and dance, the series will feature leading artists working at that nexus in conversation with their presenters. The goals of the series are to drive awareness and interest in dance made by and with disabled artists, capture and share lessons learned by featured artists, and generate dialogue and partnerships among attendees. Featured artists are grantees of Dance/NYC’s Disability. Dance. Artistry. Fund, created to advance dance made by and with disabled artists.
Dance/NYC will launch its series with a conversation with Heidi Latsky Dance followed by a master class. The master class will include a warm up exercise and the realization of Latsky's revelatory work, ON DISPLAY. Come prepared to move. Heidi Latsky's ON DISPLAY is a series of movement installations designed to disrupt the urban landscape. Its most basic version is a mostly still human sculpture court featuring performers ranging in age, disability, race and size.
