Event Type
Event Description

LabE, curated by HCL Fellow Artist in Residence Maggie Bridger, is a series of monthly cohort meetings addressing particular needs of disabled dance artists such as studio access, development and production support, and platforms for promoting Chicago’s sick, Deaf and disabled dance artists.

This LabE event is the second of three convening dedicated to those interested in devising training opportunities. Gather with other artists in the disability community to develop and deliver trainings for the wider dance community.
LabE is open to all Chicago-area dance artists who self-identify as Deaf/deaf/hard of hearing, sick, mad, neurodivergent, disabled or living with a disability, and/or who have lived experience with disability or impairment. This space is particularly meant for those interested in exploring disability and impairment-informed modes of practicing dance.

ASL Interpretation is provided by Kelsey Frost.
