2 posts in this topic

This article by Corey Kilgannon from the NYTimes (March 17, 2009) was mentioned on BT4D.

Confronting Disability With Modern Dance

Here are three quotes from the article:

Not everyone is ready for this dance company that calls itself Gimp and its members with undeveloped or amputated limbs, and bodies beset with physical challenges.

“The goal is to honor each person’s really specific ways of moving, really specific, unique personalities,” said Heidi Latsky, the dancer and choreographer who founded Gimp.

Ms. Latsky, who was with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane dance company, said she hopes to next work with veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
