In 2011 Sonne Blauma Danscz Theatre hosted the inaugural award winning dance and physical theater festival drawing more than 100 artists from five countries and 23 different cities with events in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. The second year, Raw Matters and ADaPT participant Regina Picker hosted the festival in 2012 with events in Vienna, Austria at Palais Kablewerks and Contramass Galerie. Associated with the ADaPT Festival series is ArtBark’s Affinity Project – which gives ADaPT artists a chance to reconnect for continued performance, education and information exchanges. In 2012 Affinity events occurred in Santa Barbara, Pasadena, and Paris, France culminating in a five-day Festival in October 2012.
Santa Barbara Independent Arts Editor/Critic Charles Donelan said, “The inaugural SB-ADaPT Festival took over Center Stage Theater last weekend with two full programs—Alpha and Omega—that brought together dance and physical theater companies from as far away as Istanbul and as close by as Long Beach to create a magical atmosphere of excitement and aesthetic adventure...SB-ADaPT contributed not only a beautifully executed set of programs to the community but also an example of how much can be accomplished on a small budget by like-minded artists willing to take chances and engage in genuine international exchange.”
