Trace is an immersive, multi-sensory performance that reflects on the different ways of making and experiencing music from the perspectives of people with disabilities and allies. Trace is the act of following a line with your finger, as well as tracing assumptions to its source. During this performance, we offer a way to experience concerts differently through music, poetry and theatrical elements with embedded accessibility features. The concert will premiere The Sleepers by Georgia Scott, which incorporates audio description as part of the music’s aesthetic. Jennifer Hanken’s Texture Map explores possibilities through movements and texture.

Curated by Ria Andriani and featuring music written by and for people with disability the program includes composers and performers, Georgia Scott, Jennifer Hankin, Tessa Gutierrez, Lamorna Nightingale and a very special performance from the Monday Club led by Tony Gorman. With audio description by Elias Wilson
