The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden

Jerron Herman
, choreographer, dancer, and sound artist
Sugandha Gupta, costume designer

Dancer and choreographer Jerron Herman responds to The Roof Garden Commission: Lauren Halsey with LAX, a solo dance work which reimagines movement through the Black disabled body and explores the fine line between modernity and antiquity. Unsighted textile artist Sugandha Gupta contributes the piece’s ornate, sensory-driven costume, which Herman will put into motion against an original soundscape in this celebration of Disability Pride Month at The Met.

This event is presented together with A Celebration—The Roof Garden Commission: Lauren Halsey on Sunday, July 23, and as part of Date Night at The Met and Disability Pride Month at The Met.
