Left and Right

“For composer Molly Joyce, disability is no barrier to virtuosity” — The Washington Post

Composer Molly Joyce and choreographer Jerron Herman join forces for Left and Right, a new cross-disciplinary work combining original music, dance and poetic narration. 

Joyce and Herman's respective disabilities inform their artistry, creating a kindred and prolific artistic partnership. Their latest collaboration, Left and Right, is inspired by Joyce and Herman's impaired left sides. (Herman’s is congenital from cerebral palsy. Joyce’s was acquired in a car accident.) The work is a rumination on the opposing lore of the left and right sides of the body— the left being cursed and dark, the right being healing and beneficial. 

Joyce and Herman invite accessibility collaborators into their artistic process, including directory Austin Regan, writer / audio describer Max Greyson, accessibility consultant Sandy Guttman and blind/vision impairment consultant Andy Slater. Left and Right is an evening celebrating intersectional arts and identities with accessibility at the forefront.
