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.

Fay Victor will premiere a series of new compositions for improvisers; multi-instrumentalist Mixashawn revives his Afro-Algonquin trio; trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire makes his festival debut; drummer Francisco Mora Catlett brings his signature AfroHORN outfit.
