Kinetic Light

Revel in your Body

The Ramp

Founded in 2016 under the direction and artistic leadership of Alice Sheppard, Kinetic Light is a project-based ensemble of three disabled artists: Sheppard, Laurel Lawson, and Michael Maag. Working in the disciplines of art, technology, design, and dance, Kinetic Light creates, performs, and teaches at the nexus of access, disability, dance, and race. Through rigorous investment in the histories, cultures, and artistic work of disabled people and people of color, Kinetic Light promotes disability as a creative force enabling new understandings of the moving world. Kinetic Light's repertoire is guided by disabled artists who create and perform works that speak to and emerge from disability aesthetics and disability culture.
