"In Search of Air: Growing Up Dyslexic", a one hour dance/theater performance based on her experience growing up with a learning disability, dancer, choreographer and spoken word artist Lida
Winfield shares the gifts and heartache that accompanied
her struggle to learn to read - which did not occur until her
early twenties. Mixing vignettes woven in a creative and
captivating format, the show is a platform to engage a wide variety of populations to experience disability, access and the value of the arts.
“. . . In middle school there were more of us - a lot more of us. Every child with a behavioral, social, physical or learning disability was tucked in the same room; there was not enough money, time or energy to actually teach us in the ways we needed. So we were just separate.”
This performance is free and open to the public.
