Anti-Jazz: The New Thing Revisited

Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia


International House Philadelphia presented Anti-Jazz: The New Thing Revisited, a four-concert series that featured some of the leading and founding figures of the Free Jazz movement. The series paid homage to a generation of iconoclasts while revisiting a historic moment defined by intense artistic experimentation and political upheaval. Anti-Jazz was presented in collaboration with Ars Nova Workshop, and featured performances by 2012 Pew Fellow Marshall Allen and the Sun Ra Arkestra; Bill Dixon and the Exploding Star Orchestra; Bobby Bradford, Frode Gjerstad, and Circulasione Totale Orchestra; and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
