If your Sunday is still free and you’re feeling adventurous, check out this unusual performance. It’s an improvised dance performance at Disjecta’s great, new(-ish) courtyard. It’s a good cause: the show benefits the local, annual dance publication FRONT—in its third year, FRONT is a rallying point for number of great names in dance and performance. The show is 4-hours long, which, for a Dada-like dance sounds admittedly purgatorial, but the line-up is redemptive.
Among the names are both the fresh and the familiar: Linda K. Johnson, three FRONT co-founders Noelle Stiles, Tahni Holt, and Danielle Ross, and Kaj-Anne Pepper. I watched the latter perform at Conduit’s Dance+ Festival last year. He was fabulous; there were glitter explosions.
Here's a clip from last year's Collision performance:
