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 take a moment to thank you and all involved in Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours for your support. You were certainly under no obligation to turn the festival around so quickly or at all. Your team was incredibly communicative and helpful in the transition to a remote platform. My collaborators and I are grateful to have had the opportunity to make an offering and to share such a vibrant stage for experimental art making. Thank you.
