ABOUT THE CURRENT SESSIONS //

The CURRENT SESSIONS is a performing arts organization that develops and presents the work of emerging artists. Through the production of curated performances, residencies, artist-led laboratory sessions, and open discussions, the CURRENT SESSIONS acts as a center for creative research on contemporary dance and performance art. Our mission is to cultivate high-caliber dance works by early to mid-career choreographers whose practice focuses on critical and aesthetic experimentation while demonstrating bold decision making and a honed sense of creative intuition. We aim to provide a place for movement-based practices to thrive in New York City, serving as a space for furthering contemporary choreographic and artistic expression.
