Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson perform Kinetic Light's DESCENT

This Thursday and Friday night Kinetic Light, a collective made up of professional disabled artists Alice Sheppard, Laurel Lawson, and Michael Maag, will perform their dance piece “DESCENT” at EMPAC in Troy, New York.

Performing in wheelchairs, dancers Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson traverse a stage built with hills and curves in a telling of the story of Venus and Andromeda through dance, sound, lights, and projection.

Friday's evening's performance will stream live.
