On and Beyond the Stage: Practicing Disability Access, Aesthetics, & Tech

Centering intersectional disability access, culture aesthetics, and design, Alice Sheppard and the artists of Kinetic Light discuss their work, provide a window into the new disability arts movement, and offer a provocation to those who would view dance and disability through inclusionary lenses. 

Image Description: Alice Sheppard, a light-skinned multiracial Black woman with short curly hair, suspends magesticaly from the ceiling; one arm clasped to a cable that hooks onto her wheelchair, and another outstretched straight down towards the floor. Jerron Herman, a medium-height dark-skinned Black man with a beard and kinky high top black hair, jumps up towards Alice’s outstretched hand. He is looking directly up at her and his right and is just shy of meeting hers. His palsied left arm clings to his chest. Silver barbed wire cascades all around Jerron’s body, encircling him in a sculptural framework. Photo by Grace Kathryn Landefeld, courtesy Jacob’s Pillow.
