Making Contemporary Dance Inclusive for All
Have a body? You can dance, whether you stand, or whether you sit in a wheelchair. That’s Marc Brew’s philosophy. He is the artistic director of Oakland, California’s AXIS Dance Company, which is made up of professional dancers with and without physical disabilities. Creating and performing contemporary dance routines together, these gifted artists dispel preconceived notions about who can dance every time they take the stage. Demarco Sleeper, a dancer who performs in a wheelchair, shows us how he adapts moves choreographed by an able-bodied dancer.
