Sarah Michaelson and the dangers the uninsured face every day:

Over the last decade, New York City–based choreographer Sarah Michelson has established a name for herself in downtown dance circles with her daring work. She’s won two Bessie Awards and created dances for Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project and the Lyon Opera Ballet. In January of this year she was set to premiere Daylight, a new and highly anticipated work, at PS 122. Four days before its scheduled opening she cracked a bone in her right foot, which led not only to the cancellation of the show’s three-week run but also lost income, uninsured medical bills, and a very public reconsideration of her chosen career in a New York Times pro?le before the show was rescheduled for June.
