There are a variety of activities through which to experience the work of these emerging and established artists - short and long works, multiple showings, as well as special events:

  • Opening Reception:  April 8, Monday following performance at The Flea Theater, an artist/audience gathering to celebrate the Festival.  
  • Breakfast Mix: April 11, Thursday 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM at The Flea Theater. Join us for breakfast and "Out of Town Artists' Forum and Performance Away: Beyond The Site of Production" - The panel will discuss: How does performance circulate? What moves work beyond its site of production? Can work made outside major markets thrive in minor market conditions and what might those conditions look like? For instance, can regional performance circuits counter the sometimes meager incentives of one city, one weekend runs? What good does it do to "leave home?" Following the Panel, we will enjoy a performance of an excerpt from Mayday's Goodbye. Breakfast Mix is hosted by the Cultural Government of Quebec in New York.  
  • Closing Party: Sunday, April 14 following the 3 PM performance at The Flea Theater. Join us at the NDA loft, just a 10- minute walk from The Flea Theater, where we'll share Tapas Españolas and Sangria, with a splash of flamenco performed by La Meira, and our annual silent auction (bring your checkbook, please).

New Dance Alliance is an arts service organization whose mission is to support and promote dance and interdisciplinary artists.  NDA accomplishes this by providing opportunities for artists to share their work with each other and the public. Today, NDA has expanded and adapted services as the needs of this community change.
