second Mondays through 2013
collision_theory at Links Hall
Created by Rachel Damon (Artistic Director of Synapse Arts)
and Dan Mohr (co-curator of Comfort Station’s Comfort Music series,
and of Experimental Sound Studio’s SummerSonic concerts) in 2009 as part of Links Hall’s Artistic Associates program, collision_theory is a series of improvised performances by curated pairings of musicians and dancers. At each show, seasoned improvisers from both disciplines (often with little or no history of collaborating together) ‘collide,’ navigating an unpredictable landscape of spontaneous invention.
