falling into place foveaLay-Dorsey, (Grandma Techno), will be back in Beacon from her hometown of Detroit. Lay-Dorsey was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1988, and in 2008 began taking self portraits with the intention of showing the day-to-day life of a person with a disability.

She has also been a regular at Detroit’s annual electronic-music extravaganza for the last nine years, earning the nickname Grandma Techno. She intends to distribute her book to school and university libraries, to disability organizations and rehab centers and to health care providers and doctors.

Falling Into Place will be on sale for a special price of $30.

The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a book signing and a short artist talk. At 8:30 p.m. Dorsey and Mujica will present a collaborative event that features a slideshow of images from Falling Into Place and Mujica’s musical response. Then at 9 p.m. DJ Mujica’s mixes will morph into ‘Grandma Techno’s Dance Party’ when the lights are turned down and the music is turned up. The dance party is free and open to the public. Fovea Exhibitions is located at 143 Main St., Beacon. Visit foveaexhibitions.org.

    Giving honor to someone’s work or contribution is getting unique styles. As the style of launching book is different adding it with dance party function will create image of falling into place.Hahahaa.I think it will create great intention of audience and curiosity in that way.
