"At this year’s NADA New York show, we worked with Sam Gordon and Cafe Dancer who put together a performance program entitled “Contemporary Dancing”. The program included 18 performances, which took place in various locations at the fair, some inside, some outside, some roaming and integrated, some “on stage.” Because the curators took such care in making sure that each performance was executed in a way that didn’t compromise the performers or the exhibitors around them, they all seemed to work well. Performance is transporting, at least when it’s done right."
