“This is groundbreaking work.” —Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, Founder of Urban Bush Women

Dance Magazine’s “Most Moving Performance of 2018,” DESCENT features two dancers in wheelchairs navigating the surface of a six-foot tall ramp sprawling the stage in dramatic peaks and curves. Kinetic Light—working in the disciplines of art, design, architecture, and social justice—presents the story of Venus and Andromeda, reimagined as interracial lovers and brought together by the sculptor Rodin. A work transcending the senses, DESCENT celebrates the pleasure of reckless abandon, obliterating assumptions of beauty and ability.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
