Recap: UCLA Dancing Disability Lab Open Studio

On Sunday, July 23, the 2023 Dancing Disability Lab hosted the Dancing Disability Lab Open Studio, where they shared the discoveries and productive frictions of a week of discussing, moving and dance-making.


This event concluded an experimental, weeklong exploration of performance and choreographic development for dance artists committed to disability justice.

Individually and collectively, the dances we make re-envision inclusive community, challenge ableism and transform ideas about body, personhood and identity.

The event was followed by a reception with light refreshments in the Kaufman outdoor courtyard.

This event was ASL translated, wheelchair accessible, and fragrance-free.
