The Vision Festival is a celebration of boundless improvised art. Now in its 23rd year, this festival of music, dance, poetry, and visual art is heralded as “one of New York’s most essential art events” (New York Times).  Legendary and emerging stars representing the free jazz, experimental, and avant-garde communities will perform 30 sets over six nights.

This second night features Mary Halvorson’s new group Code Girl; the free improvising Whit Dickey trio; dancer Patricia Nicholson’s Women with an Axe to Grind; SPACE, featuring Roscoe Mitchell, Thomas Buckner, and Scott Robinson.

Founded in 1996, festival presenter Arts For Art (AFA) is a New York City based tax exempt organization dedicated to the promotion and advancement of free jazz — an American indigenous art form in which improvisation is principle.
