Footprints delivers an outstanding presentation of three ADF-commissioned world premieres and two reconstructions by groundbreaking artists, performed with impeccable technique and infectious energy by ADF students. Two of Scripps/ADF award winner Lucinda Childs' minimalist works, 2013's Kilar and 1993's Concerto, will be performed. After making his ADF debut in 2015 with his co-created Awkward Magic, Gregory Dolbashian returns. Dolbashian's choreography has been described as "fluidly inventive" by the The New York Times. Canada's Shay Kuebler's work crosses the boundaries of martial arts, theater, and dance and strives to discover new, compelling, and challenging forms of physical art. Gesel Mason's pieces seek to create meaningful, relevant, and compelling art events as a way to encourage compassion and inquiry.
