Off-Kilter is Off-Leash Area’s new cabaret performance program designed to highlight and support artists with disabilities both on stage and in the leadership of the program. Through Off-Kilter, Off-Leash Area makes space for and gives voice to artists with disabilities in the design and leadership of the program.
Curated by the Off-Kilter Leadership Group, the inaugural year is organized around the theme “Organ Recital.” Off-Leash Area was excited to partner with Young Dance, whose mission is transforming lives through movement.
