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.

Friday night features Irreversible Entanglements’ free jazz merged with the spoken word poetry of Moor Mother (Camae Ayewa); drummer Nasheet Waits leads his flagship Equality quartet; pianist Matthew Shipp premieres a new work for sextet, commissioned specially for Vision Festival: Inward Motion.
