Work Up

Work Up is a residency, professional development program, & performance opportunity that supports EARLY CAREER artists

Emphasizing the articulation of a choreographer’s ideas in both movement and language, Work Up artists are selected through a two-tiered application process including a written submission and a live audition.

This fall, a panel selected 9 works for presentation on three shared programs at 280 Broadway in March 2020. Artists receive a $1,000 performance fee and 30 hours of granted rehearsal space. Additionally, artists will meet as a cohort for 3 informal showings between December 2019 and February 2020.

Tickets for Work Up 6.0 are available below.
