ADF alumni Amadi Washington and Sam Pratt are returning to ADF with 4/2/3, which focuses on the generational impacts of climate change using the “Riddle of the Sphinx” as a symbolic structure. The piece is divided into three sections for three generations of performers, examining the intergenerational cooperation necessary to acknowledge this existential crisis. Just as the riddle asks us to look at the cycle of one life, 4/2/3 gives us the structure to speak about the life cycle of an entire species. Reflecting on humanity’s industrial history, we build new worlds on less oppressive, less extractive, and more sustainable foundations. 

“Baye and Asa’s 4/2/3 is a cathartic and visceral experience like none other. It must be seen.”
– Mikhail Baryshnikov
