Interview with Karen Bernard Director of New Dance Alliance and producer of the Performance Mix Festival.
Formed in 1979, New Dance Alliance (NDA) is a non-profit tax exempt arts service organization whose mission is to actively promote emerging forms of innovative dance, video, music, and interdisciplinary performance work. NDA was founded to support an artistic community with limited institutional resources, and to provide this community with increased opportunities to share experimental works with the public. Today NDA remains dedicated to its founding principals and has expanded its programming to include services that enable artists’ career advancement.
NDA Performance Mix Festival 2013 offered me an opportunity to present a new work in progress and to take an artistic risk by going in a new direction. As an artist at the border of theatre and dance, I was honored to be included in the festival and to be part of the community that was created during those weeks. The festival was a positive experience overall and I am grateful to NDA for including me.
