This Space Occupied

Original Performance on December 3, 1998

1998 – Dancers and musicians, improvising artists from DC, NYC, Germany, England, South Africa, and France, occupy the entire Corcoran Gallery of Art building for the opening event of the DC 4th International Improvisation Festival.  Curated by Maida Withers, choreographer, and Jim Levy, jazz musician, this site performance is in the tradition of last year’s wildly successful Seeing Jazz Move at the Smithsonian.  The performance is produced by Maida Withers Dance Construction Company and presented by the Corcoran in association with The George Washington University, Department of Theatre and Dance and Department of Music, the Goethe-Institut, and the Embassy of France.
