ADF Showings at Scripps: Improvisational Crossings


ADF is pleased to host free informal showings of dance pieces in progress in our Scripps Studios. Masking is strongly encouraged. Space is limited and registration is required.


Saturday, September 16, 2023 @ 7pm

The simple description of this program is that we will be presenting a series of three dual improvisations:
Barbara Dickinson and Daniel Levin
Allie Pfeffer and West Oxking
Marika Niko and West Oxking

But the reality is a complex interchange of textures, moods, timbres, and tonalities, which is also a continuation of our own personal trajectories as artists. What do we each draw out in the other? How do we make space for each other? What shared values are expressed? What new areas are discovered? After our improvisations, we would like to have a conversation with you, the audience, on the nature of improvisation and its integration with our lived experience.

Registration required! You can register here.

For any questions, please contact Jennifer Scully-Thurston, jscullythurston@americandancefestival.org
