Join us on the evening of November 9 for the newest Late Shift program highlighting LAX, a site-responsive, interactive performance and score choreographed by interdisciplinary artist and dancer Jerron Herman.

Designed to be experienced from anywhere within Frank Lloyd Wright’s rotunda, Herman’s score will guide visitors’ energy throughout the building, creating moments that honor our bodies’ needs for comfort, play, and rest.

This immersive program, presented in collaboration with the Center for Disability Studies (CDS) at New York University, will also feature a host of additional activations throughout the museum. Herman’s score will ebb and flow, providing opportunities for visitors to engage with performance textiles created by artist Sugandha Gupta and to attend gallery talks with vibrant verbal descriptions of artworks and lively conversation led by educators Georgina Kleege and Bojana Coklyat.

The evening is planned with a multi-sensory approach and centers audiences and artists with disabilities, in a supportive and welcoming environment including the following:

  • American Sign Language interpretation
  • CART (real-time captioning)
  • Assistive listening devices
  • Social narrative (visual instructions and overview of the program)
  • Dedicated chill-out areas (relaxed spaces with less sensory input)
  • Noise-reducing headphones and earplugs
