William Parker and Patricia Nicholson

William Parker and Patricia Nicholson, the organizers of Vision Festival, will present a new work called “Studies in Freedom.” The piece mixes up music, words and dance “to tell a story of the collective heart yearning for Freedom; it expresses our greatest visions, our desire to attain what is best not only for ourselves, but for all.” according to a press release. “We will use words that escape from our souls to speak of our hearts.” Parker, a double-bassist, is a giant in the contemporary jazz scene. Nicholson, a dancer and choreographer, has been an incredibly strong force in New York City’s artistic community centered on the Lower East Side since 1981, when she directed and helped to organize “A Thousand Cranes Peace Opera,” for the opening of the UN Special Sessions on Disarmament. Don’t sleep on this; art and activism rarely mix this eloquently and forcefully.
