Axis Audio-Described Dance Performance: "Adelante" (in-person)

Axis Audio-Described Dance Performance: "Adelante" (in-person)

Sep 18

Join us for an afternoon of dance including a pre-show haptic experience with world acclaimed mixed ability dance troupe, AXIS Dance Company.

Named after the Spanish word for both “forward” and “go ahead”, the three works in Adelante all find common ground in the triumph of the human spirit. The first piece is Breathe Again by AIXS Artistic Director, Nadia Adame, which “explores the most suffocating parts of our collective and individual journeys.” The second is Tread by Ben Levine, “a joyful exploration of momentum, friction, and gravity that uses wheeled children’s toys to level the playing field between disabled and non-disabled dancers.” The third piece is by Asun Noales and “digs into the desires, pleasures, and delights of human relationships.”

Gravity Access will be offering audio description live during this performance and a haptic experience with props and dancers will take place on hour prior to the show.

The performance will take place at ODC Theater located at 3153 17th Street in San Francisco.

They are offering us discounted tickets at $20 a person when you use the code, LIGHTHOUSE, available through the ODC Box office website. Purchase tickets to Adelante.
