Sonsheree Giles and Rodney Bell perform the award winning duet, To Color Me Different, choreographed by Alex Keltley, at the SFMOMA. "Now entering its third decade, AXIS vision is to remain a leader in the emerging field of physically integrated dance by continuing to set new artistic and educational standards... AXIS wants its work to challenge traditional definitions of dance, dancer, and ability to expand dance to include an entire community that has been virtually left out of the performing arts. At AXIS, our biggest dream is to make a lasting contribution to contemporary dance." photo: 'Vessel' choreographed by Alex Ketley. Dancers Sonsheree Giles & Rodney Bell.
