To honor the 25-year anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, mixed-ability dance companies AXIS Dance Company and Heidi Latsky Dance present a multimedia dance/art installation and three choreographic works at the NYU Skirball Center on November 15. A walk-through lobby installation, On Display, features the differently abled company dancers donning high-fashion clothing against a backdrop of film and music. AXIS Dance Company will present works by Marc Brew and Joe Goode alongside Heidi Latsky Dance’s piece about isolation, Somewhere, following the installation.
