Unconventional, Defying the Norm
Since 2003, DANCENOW has worked with Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater to bring dance to this traditionally all-music venue, embracing the intimacy of the pub as a means to encourage the creative process. Recognizing the value of its unconventional programming at Joe’s Pub, and in sync with the goals of this wonderfully genre-blind music venue, DANCENOW has established a new home base and consolidated its NYC programming at the pub as DANCENOW Joe’s Pub in the fall of 2011. Through DANCENOW Joe’s Pub we challenge urban artists to take creative leaps and investigate new directions that will, in turn, excite and energize audiences for dance.
Across-the-Board Assistance for Our Artists
Through four distinct programs, DANCENOW serves a vast and diverse spectrum of dance makers at varying stages of their development. DANCENOW Joe’s Pub, DANCENOW Raw, DANCENOW Silo and DANCENOW SteelStacks provide across-the-board assistance for artists that includes paid performance opportunities, creative residencies, teaching and commissioning opportunities in New York City as well as Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to encourage and develop new work, as well as mentorship forums to cultivate feedback and the exchange of ideas.
