De-mystifying Access and Physical Diversity

Talk by Jess Curtis / Gravity († 11.03.2024), Bea Carolina Remark, Bernhard Richarz
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

Three artists and teachers share their experiences and review current practices around teaching, performing and advertising physically diverse dance and performance.

Jess Curtis / Gravity († 11.03.2024)

Jess Curtis died unexpectedly on Monday, March 11, in San Francisco.  

Gravity creates exceptionally engaging body-based art that physically addresses issues and ideas of relevance to anyone with a body. The company was founded in 2000 by choreographer-director Jess Curtis, whose work ranges from the underground extremes of San Francisco warehouse performances with such iconic companies as Contraband and CORE in the 1980s, to the exuberance of French circus tents with Compagnie Cahin-Caha, and the refinement of state theaters in Berlin, London, Glasgow, and other major cultural centers. Gravity’s innovative, accessible, and experimental work consistently engages with issues of embodied diversity including gender, sexuality, and disability.
