​UNDER MOMENTUM
Presented by KINETIC LIGHT
Under Momentum by Kinetic Light celebrates the joy of being in continuous motion, the allure of speed, and the beautiful futility of resisting gravity. Performed on and around a set of exquisitely engineered ramps, this program of solos and duets ranges through explorations of balance, stillness, and falls as Kinetic Light’s disabled dancers release into the forces of acceleration, gravity, and torque. Choreography by Alice Shephard in collaboration with dancer Laurel Lawson. www.kineticlight.org
