Opening Reception

Monday, April 8, following the 7pm performance at The Flea Theater

An artist/audience gathering to celebrate the Festival.

Breakfast Mix

Thursday, April 11th, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM at The Flea Theater

Join us for breakfast and “Out of Town Artists’ Forum and Performance Away: Beyond The Site of Production” – A panel discussion facilitated by [popup url=”https://newdancealliance.org/performance-mix-festival/artist-roster/robert-tyree/”]Robert Tyree[/popup], Mix artist and writer from Portland, Oregon, with guest artist Jaamil Kosoko, Producing Associate – Humanities and Engagement at New York Live and a panel of Mix national and international artists. The panel will discuss: How does performance circulate? What moves work beyond its site of production-and to what end? Can artists and organizations outside major markets thrive in minor market conditions-perhaps through regional performance circuits-to counter the sometimes meager incentives of one city, one weekend runs? What good does it do to “leave home”? Following the Panel, we will enjoy a performance of an excerpt from [popup url=”https://newdancealliance.org/performance-mix-festival/artist-roster/mayday/”]Mayday[/popup]’s Goodbye.

Breakfast Mix is hosted by the Cultural Government of Quebec in New York.
