Arts on Division 2013 – Somerville NJ

June 7, 2013

Strolling through the crowds, asking questions, collecting nouns, verbs and adjectives with the “Mad Libber”, dancing to the Paisley Pickles, choosing new names from “Still Life with Woodpecker” and taking a “Chance”…. it’s all a Dada Game.

Day de Dada Performance Art Collective at “Arts on Division” an annual outdoor festival of the Arts in Downtown Somerville NJ.

Dada performers had fun with “Game Time” a spontaneous and interactive art performance, using nonsense skills and chance, Ridicu-posterous word games, and procured poems.
