What if we could be transported out of our disability-unfriendly environments, and what if race and gender didn’t matter? These are some of the questions choreographer and dancer Alice Sheppard explores in DESCENT, which premiered March 22 at New York Live Arts. Along with dance partner Laurel Lawson and lighting and video artist Michael Maag, Sheppard creates a new world in which wheelchair users are free to play and love and just be.
