Obliterating assumptions of what dance, beauty, and disability can be, this duet takes audiences on a transformative ride. DESCENT reimagines the Rodin sculpture of Greek mythological figures Venus and Andromeda as a love story for two women. Dancers Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson traverse a stage built with hills and curves that acts as a partner in the choreography and storytelling. The duo claim their desire as their wheelchairs fly within inches of the ramp’s edges, moving together and apart in a lushly lit landscape created through breathtaking projections by Michael Maag. DESCENT won the 2018 Reader’s Choice award for most moving performance from Dance Magazine.
