There we were: two hundred or so of the dance cognoscenti, waiting eagerly outside Schaefer Theater, mere moments before the 6:45 p.m. showing of Sarah Skaggs’ Dances for Airports.

That’s when the fire alarm went off.

When the (stage) smoke had cleared, Skaggs’ final performance had to be rescheduled — at the fire marshal’s insistance — to Monday night, between that evening’s two ADF mainstage shows, “around 8:30 p.m.”

Since stage smoke from Skaggs’ performance was believed to have triggered the alarm, the fire marshal would not permit a second show until the alarm system could be reset. An initially rescheduled showing for 8:30 Saturday night had to be cancelled as well when the system could not be reset in time.

For more information on the performance, see the post below. See you Monday night.
