Under Momentum celebrates the joys of being continuously in motion, the allure of speed, and the beautiful futility of resisting gravity. Performed on and around a series of curvaceous wedged ramps, this showcase suite of solos and duets ranges through graceful explorations of balance, stillness and falls as Kinetic Light’s disabled dancers release into the forces of acceleration, gravity and torque.
The portable ramp platform kit was designed by Sara Hendren as part of her slope :: intercept project.
Under Momentum has been performed at The Whitney Museum of Art in New York City, Inside/Out at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts, The Green Show at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon, the Forward Motion Festival in Miami, and the Fresh Meat Festival in San Francisco, California. Under Momentum was first performed as a solo for Alice Sheppard at the 2016 MediaCity Seoul Biennale.
