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.
I want to thank you (Karen Bernard) so much for including my work in the Performance Mix Festival and for everything NDA did to make the experience special. Rehearsing at NDA was so wonderful and fruitful for me. I loved being able to see other shows in the festival. I wish I could have seen them all, everything sounded fascinating! The whole production and support team was great to work with and really supportive. Kathryn Butler’s photos are gorgeous. I really have nothing but good things to say about the whole experience.
