Dancing Wheels will be presenting a full evening concert entitled “Reverse * Reboot * Reveal”. Commissioning three disabled choreographers to create new works on the Dancing Wheels Company and engage in the opportunity to learn or further develop their craft in the realm of physically integrated dance. The three categories of choreographers are Advanced, Mid-Range and Emerging. Mr. Marc Brew, Artistic Director of AXIS Dance Company, has accepted commission of his work in the category of Advanced Choreography.
These new works will receive their world premiere at a landmark concert presented by Dancing Wheels at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, OH on June 14, 2019, coinciding with the DanceUSA Conference convening in Cleveland. Following the premiere of the “Reverse * Reboot * Reveal” concert, the works will be excerpted by Dancing Wheels to construct a residency program exploring the history and societal impact of artists with disabilities and the physically integrated dance movement. This residency program will be part of our 2019/2020 national touring schedule, celebrating the 40-year anniversary of the Dancing Wheels Company & School. The goal of the project is to advance Dancing Wheels’ global mission to promote and encourage the development of work by choreographers with disabilities.
