Returning after being canceled in 2020 when performing arts venues were shuttered, the Third Annual Forward Motion Physically Integrated Dance Festival & Conference showcases companies, dancers and choreographers who are inclusive of those with and without disabilities, exploring a new terrain of beauty, movement and performance. Produced by Florida’s own groundbreaking physically integrated dance pioneers, Karen Peterson and Dancers (KPD), this third event will truly mark the start of South Florida’s reopened performing arts season, and feature some of the best dancers and companies of any kind, in performance, in discussion and holding workshops.
Performances include the Miami premieres of Dancing Wheels’ Company’s Pallas Athena, with choreography by Catherine Meredith, and Odyssey, with choreography by Marc Brew; the Miami premiere of Perky, Quirky, Smirky, from REVolutions Dance, with choreography by Christina Acosta; the Miami premiere of Remember When, a solo featuring Jesus Vidal de Leon, choreography by Marc Brew; and a new restaging of KPD’s Lost and Found, choreography by Karen Peterson, video by Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez.
