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.
From New Dance Alliance: Best wishes for the holidays and may you have a
happy new year!
