About LiftOff Workshops:

Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring workshops strive to create a safe and intimate space to receive feedback that supports the aesthetics of seasoned artists and explore resources to enable development. The group meets weekly for a three-hour session for 10 weeks with feedback facilitated by NDA director Karen Bernard and Jil Guyon.

During the workshop three guests from the industry are invited to be part of the feedback process. LiftOff takes place at NDA’s studio, 182 Duane Street in the heart of Tribeca. Space for LiftOff is limited.

Today: Last chance to back us on Kickstarter!


Dear friends,

I know we say this every year, but truly, this year’s festival was exceptional. And the reviews are rolling in — says Gabrielle Revlock’s performance “keeps [the] audience guessing and gasping” and describes Victoria Libertore’s as “masterful” and “moving and effective performance”. Thank you again for all your support!

But the work continues.

Putting together a yearly festival is a lot of work and while we were running it we fundraised quite a bit, but not enough.

Our Kickstarter ends today, Friday, June 15th at 11:59 PM. We won’t be funded unless we reach our $10,000 goal. We have a generous donor who has agreed to match your donations 1:1.

DON’T WAIT!!! Now is the time to have your contribution doubled – be quick and be generous.

Karen Bernard

PS: Great perks are still available! Read more
