The Construction Company presents new and innovative work by dance, music and graphic artists. The organization began in 1970 as the Barbara Gardner Construction Company. In 1972 the name was changed to The Construction Company when it found its first home on LaGuardia place near the NYU campus. Since that time it has produced the work of innumerable emerging experimental choreographers. In its current space at 10 East 18th Street it has added contemporary music programming as well as gallery presentations of the work of visual artists.
The Performance Project @ University Settlement:
Since 2007, The Performance Project has been offering local young artists and professional emerging artists opportunities to connect, create and publicly present new work. We support artists who are interested in how live art can heal, empower and activate. The artists we work with commit to organizational and creative practices that promote trust, imagination and power-sharing. Our incubator for the next generation of citizen artists is fueled by our distinct, yet connected, cohorts: the Artist-in-Residence Program, The Performance Project Fellowship Program for Early Emerging Artists, our Community Arts and Culture Councils for Public Housing Residents and our annual Performance-Making Intensive for Young Artists & Leaders. We also host other community programs and dynamic guest artists seeking an affordable and supportive opportunity to self-produce their work.
