NuVu students collaborate with Heidi Latsky Dance on wearable sculptures that celebrate disability

For the past two terms, NuVu students have worked in collaboration with Heidi Latsky Dance to design wearable sculptures for her performers for On Display Global – a performance arts piece that uses fashion as a tool of social justice to celebrate the beauty of difference.

Each one of the performers has a disability, and students worked closely with them to design individualized pieces that highlight a passion, experience, personality trait, or something that makes them feel strong.

“This is a beautiful studio,” said Rosa Weinberg, Idea Engineer at NuVu. “It’s an amazing experience for the students, performers, attendees, and coaches.”
