Sundays on Broadway returns to present an evening of performances by Scott Heron, Jennifer Miller and Jennifer Monson, and Cathy Weis.

Dancer and dance-maker Scott Heron will present an untitled, mostly improvisational online visitation/teleportation with one or more special guests from around the world.

Jennifer Miller and Jennifer Monson will perform a new duet. In this new work they will engage choreographic processes that articulate, examine and reconfigure their distinct musicalities, working from both classical and experimental improvisational musical references. They will bring to the surface their different approaches to performance – through spectacle, sensation and various states of performance presence.

Cathy Weis is beginning a new trio with Emily Climer and Patrick Gallagher called Appetite.
