Join ADF for a narrative dance performance!

Set in a fictional jazz club, SCAT!... The Complex Lives of Al & Dot, Dot & Al Zollar is a dance-driven musical that tells the love story of two people making their way during the Great Migration. It is a powerful tale of one family and what happens when dreams encounter the realities of American life in the '40s and '50s. The work features an original jazz score performed by a live band. Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, who created, choreographed, and directed SCAT!... The Complex Lives of Al & Dot, Dot & Al Zollar, says, "It is my story. It is my family's story. It is a personal and collective story of a family and a people, moving from the Jim Crow South during the Great Migration."

After the July 17 performance, Dr. James Frazier will present the 2024 Samuel H. Scripps/American Dance Festival Award for lifetime achievement to Jawole Willa Jo Zollar.
