New York Live Arts
Located in the heart of Chelsea in New York City, New York Live Arts is an internationally recognized destination for innovative movement-based artistry offering audiences access to art and artists notable for their conceptual rigor, formal experimentation and active engagement with the social, political and cultural currents of our times. At the center of this identity is artistic director Bill T. Jones, a world-renowned choreographer, dancer, theater director and writer. We commission, produce and present performances in our 20,000 sq. ft. home, which includes a 184-seat theater and two 1,200 sq. ft. studios. Each year, nearly 100 performances are presented in our theater, and our annual season includes world premieres of works commissioned by New York Live Arts through the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning fund. New York Live Arts also supports the continuing professional development of artists. We have a deep commitment to continuing Dance Theater Workshop’s legacy of developing choreographic talent, supporting many of the country’s most outstanding choreographers long before they became well known. The 2014- 15 season marked its 30th year of programmatic support, having supported more than 700 projects and more than 1,000 independent artists through our fresh Tracks program.
