“It Comes Down to Loving Movement”
Text by Emmaly Wiederholt
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews Ginger Lane, a Chicago based dancer, teacher and choreographer. Ginger shares how the themes of dance and disability activism have come together in her career, specifically through her involvement with Access Living and MOMENTA Dance Company. She discusses the struggle that physically integrated dance faces in being seen as a legitimate art form, the slow progress in the US as compared to Europe, and the difficulty building repertoire in physically integrated dance.
