Dixon Place Performance Works-in-Progress
curated by Katy Einerson
Performance Works-In-Progress is Dixon Place's signature program. This series highlights new theatre, performance art, music, burlesque, circus arts and interdisciplinary collaborations by emerging and established artists. The goal of the series is to foster a diverse range of disciplines and perspectives and to encourage artistic risk-taking in a supportive, intimate and professional environment. The projects presented are in varying stages of development.

This program is aimed at emerging artists who are looking for a stepping-stone between a showcase format and full-on evening-length self-production. Curated by a panel of experienced dance artists, the Split Bill Series encourages 8 chosen choreographers to develop lengthier, fully realized works, carefully pairing them with those of complimentary artists.

FiveMyles SpaceProgram offers our venue, free of charge, to emerging, young artists, musicians and performers for unfunded short-term events and exhibitions, in-between our scheduled exhibition programming and during the summer months, when the gallery would otherwise be empty. Events often take place on the wide sidewalk outside FiveMyles.
The on-going demand for the use of the FiveMyles gallery space through this program is indicative of the need young artists have to expose their work to the public, and of the difficulty of attaining it in New York. Making space available helps the arts retain the vitality and energy of a young generation of artists, and to encourage innovation and experimentation.
Proposals are reviewed by our artistic committee. We favor projects that are risk-taking, require minimal setup, and make effort to connect with the audience.
