Mason Gross Dance Presents Kinetic Light

| September 30, 2022 - October 1, 2022 | New Brunswick Performing Arts Center

Kinetic Light is an internationally recognized disability arts ensemble presenting a work titled DESCENT. Working in the disciplines of art, technology, design, and dance, Kinetic Light creates, performs, and teaches at the nexus of access, queerness, disability, dance, and race. The Kinetic Light artists and creators of DESCENT are disabled dance artists Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson, and disabled scenographer Michael Maag. Kinetic Light’s work speaks to and emerges from disability aesthetics and disability culture. Performed on a custom-designed architectural ramp installation with hills, curves, and peaks, DESCENT explores the pleasures of wheeled movement and reckless abandon, inspired by the sensual writings and art of French sculptor Auguste Rodin to give the mythological characters of Venus and Andromeda new life as interracial lovers.

Please note: This performance is accessible and is appropriate for high school age and up. 

Public $25 // Rutgers Alumni/Employees & Seniors $20 // Students $15
