DW_2011_4Coshocton is home to a winter roost of crows, meaning annually, upwards to 10,000 crows gather nightly from¬†early November to early March¬†in a line of trees along the river. It is hard to watch the crows flying in to roost without thinking somehow it‚Äôs a dance‚Äďso many bodies moving together through space‚Äďin time with each other…So dance the crows in we will!As part of the 2nd Annual Crow Homecoming, the Pomerene Center for the Arts presents Dancing Wheels, one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the U.S. “Dancing Wheels is proof that the possibilities are endless.”¬†Christopher Reeve.¬†

May their performance excite and inspire us to resituate our thinking: (at least for the day) our view of 10,000 crows from community impairment to natural phenomenon and (hopefully for a lifetime) our perceptions of the limits of individual disability.

Dancing Wheels will perform a¬†5 min. live ¬†‚Äútrailer‚ÄĚ to the full indoor dance performance¬†at 1pm, 300 block of Main Street Coshocton as part of the¬†2nd Annual Crow Homecoming and last Hurrah for the world’s 1st Root Ball Park¬†festivities.

DANCING WHEELS

The Dancing Wheels Company,¬†considered one¬†of¬†the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the U.S.,¬†is a professional, physically integrated dance¬†company¬†uniting the talents¬†of¬†dancers both with and without disabilities.¬†¬†Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the U.S., founded the Dancing Wheels Company in Cleveland in 1980. Born with spina bifida, Mary wanted to offer others with disabilities full and equal access into the world of dance. An almost unimaginable concept at the time, Mary‚Äôs vision and passion have since helped to revolutionize our very notion of dance ‚Äď as well as what defines a dancer.¬† If dance is an expression of the human spirit, then it is best expressed by people of¬†all abilities.¬† For more information, please visit¬†www.dancingwheels.org.
