Please 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 making by and with disabled artists. Dance/NYC will launch its series on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 with a conversation with Heidi Latsky Dance, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., followed by a master class, 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, moderated by Kevin Gotkin, Co-Founder of The Disability/Arts/NYC Task Force, and spotlighting choreographer Heidi Latsky and representatives of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts: Jill Sternheimer, Director of Public Programming; Daniel Soto, Associate Producer of Public Programming; Miranda Appelbaum, Assistant Director of Accessibility and Guest Services; and Jordana Phokompe, Director of the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.
