In the first episode of our first season on national public TV, Laura interviews two performance artists whose work illustrates how difference and neurodiversity can make art and society richer and more equitable. Alice Sheppard is a disabled dancer/choreographer and the artistic director of the company Kinetic Light. Jess Thom is a performer and comedian with Tourettes and the founder of Touretteshero. In their conversations with Laura, they question our attitudes towards disability and explore how art can challenge our notions of the normative.
