Dissolving Doors is a festival with three days of class, two nights of performances, and opening and closing jams on Wednesday and Sunday. Organized by the Philly Compositional Improvisation Lab in conjunction with the NY Compositional Improvisation Lab and the Lovelies, the festival is a space to share practices in compositional improvisation. This unique form of spontaneous ensemble-based dance-making tasks a group of people to create a complete piece together in the moment. Unlike choreography with a set end product, the practice of this form is the piece; thus, this festival will include both lab-like settings for exploration and performance opportunities. Compositional improvisation, as opposed to other forms of dance improvisation, asks us to pay attention to and compose in real-time with various elements at play, including the negotiation of the self and the whole, dynamics, thematic material, and more.

The faculty from Philly are Loren Groenendaal, Curt Haworth, Kat J Sullivan; the NY faculty include, Kathryn Butler, Joanna Futral, Allison Knuth, Lena Lauer, and Katie Vason.
