Dada: Here and Now is an arts extravaganza celebrating Dada’s 100th anniversary and is proof, if it be needed, that Zurich is not the only city that goes Gaga over Dada. During SFIAF 2016 the artists, performers, musicians, videographers, and other creative types collectively present the imaginative results of being challenged to move beyond the Duchampian idea of ‘retinal’ art. The evening is highlighted by a performance by David Molina on his creation Rusting Souls and also features performances by Igor Josifov with Untie, Jasper Patterson with Art Riot!: Dada and Mass Schizophrenia, Ros Salters Acosta and Maria T. Allocco with At War With Language and Steve Wolkoff with Free Verse.
Hosted by the Consulate General of Switzerland to celebrate the Swiss company T42 Dance Projects' participation in the Festival and to honor the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Dadaist Movement in Zurich, Switzerland in 2016.
