Announcing the 31st Annual Performance Mix Festival

June 8-11, 2017


University Settlement

184 Eldridge Street, New York, NY 10002

New Dance Alliance is pleased to announce the lineup for the 31st annual Performance Mix Festival. “The most elaborate festival of the unpredictable” (The New York Times), the 2017 festival will feature works by 20 local and international dance artists, as well as Performance Mix’s annual community breakfast, a dance party, and more. The festival runs June 8?11, 2017, at University Settlement.

Curated by New Dance Alliance Founder and Director Karen Bernard, this year’s festival will feature an extraordinary group of artists with diverse approaches to performance. With ideas and themes as varied as evolution, cultural identity, anarchy, and fairy tales, as well as the more indefinable, the works presented at this year’s festival invite audiences to engage with the unexpected, and even to experience some of the newest voices in downtown dance.

About LiftOff Workshops:

LiftOff Workshops strive to create a safe and intimate space to receive feedback that supports the artist’s aesthetics and explore resources to enable project development. The workshop encourages dance and performance that explores cross over disciplines such as spoken word, visual art, video and sound manipulation. The group has a limited number of participants in order to allow for short and longer works to be shared and to promote dialogue. During the workshop three guests from the “industry” are invited to participate in the feedback process including choreographers, performance artists, composers, lighting designers, visual artists and presenters.
