“Branches” via Abilities Dance Boston — Saturday July 15th!

Krishna says:

I’m very honored to be able to share my first choreographic commission with you all, An Outback Story, as well as an entire dance concert with open audio description all throughout! Abilities Dance Boston gave me an opportunity to teach a little bit about writing audio description to the choreographers involved as well. Since open audio description for any dance performance is a rare and special thing, let alone open audio description for virtual dance performances, I think that Branches will be a great opportunity for our community to come together, listen to many artists’ styles of audio description, and talk with each other afterwards, actively learn and hone our ear for audio description for dance. Please come and join in, support disabled artists and support audio description for dance!
