Dance Now Festival
DANCE NOW announces the lineup for the 2019 DANCE NOW Festival September 4–7, 2019 to be held at Joe’s Pub in New York. The Festival presents a diverse range of works from some of today’s most innovative and dynamic dance makers. The 24th season of this lively fall festival will feature 40 emerging and established choreographers, including DANCE NOW veterans and festival newcomers.
The annual DANCE NOW Festival serves as a vital testing ground for the development of full-evening works to be presented at Joe’s Pub as part of DANCE NOW’s Commissioned Artist Series. As part of this mission, the festival offers a unique challenge for artists: to create a clear and complete artistic statement in five minutes or less for the Pub’s tiny stage. The festival producers select ten artists whose work best meets the festival challenge to participate in an encore program. The overall challenge winner receives a development stipend, creative residencies at DANCE NOW Silo on Kirkland Farm in Bucks County, PA, and at Arts On Site in New York City, and a future commission to create a new work for Joe’s Pub.
The encore performance will be presented on Thursday, September 26, at 7pm.
Tickets can be purchased online at joespub.com
