Gravity brings you down into the underbelly of CounterPulse for a multi-sensory durational performance experience in the Project Space
Jess Curtis and his team of international collaborators will share excerpts from their research into the intersections of movement, culture, sensory difference, and physical diversity in live performance: inviting you into a full-body performance experience.
The event is a 25 minute cycle that will begin again every 30 minutes starting at 6pm, you can stay for as many cycles as you want, first come first served.
Access: This performance is accessible for people who are blind / visually impaired / low vision. The work mobilizes access practices of audio description and touch tours, so it’s loaded with layers of sensory experience
