Well, we did it.
We managed to get through a full season of thoughtful, rigorous, multifarious, multi-everything premiere performances at our new permanent forever home (and a few other places), for audiences comprised of living, breathing human beings in real time and space. Wow.
Aya Ogawa. AUNTS. Sibyl Kempson. luciana achugar. aden. James Allister Sprang. Justin Allen. TYGAPAW. Justin Cabrillos. Jon Kinzel. Donna Uchizono. Laurie Berg. Larissa Velez-Jackson. Japan Society. Flux Factory. ISSUE Project Room. Abrons Arts Center. NYU Skirball. PICA. Baryshnikov Arts Center.
Each of these astonishing artists and partner organizations were willing guinea pigs in a weird experiment: to inaugurate a space that was almost-but-not-quite-ready to be inaugurated. And each of them delivered in ways that were personal, surprising, messy, undefinable, and perfectly imperfect.
In other words: we did a lot, and we learned a lot.
Please help us to do more, and learn more, with a gift of any size. Recurring donations are especially meaningful; but anything (and everything) is immensely helpful, and appreciated.
This season, we: commissioned and presented 9 world premiere performances to sold out audiences and critical acclaim.
Partnered with Japan Society, Flux Factory, Abrons Arts Center, NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Baryshnikov Arts Center, ISSUE Project Room and PICA.
Hosted Fulbright scholar Mira Todorova (based in Sofia, Bulgaria).
Welcomed live audiences (finally!) into our new permanent home.
With major support from the Lambent Foundation, we are now paying all lead artists, performers, designers and technicians a fair hourly wage for all residency weeks within The Chocolate Factory’s spaces.
Our Fall 2021 premiere of Aya Ogawa’s The Nosebleed will be reprised Off Broadway (at LCT3) in August 2022.
