About Performance Mix Festival

For 38 years, New Dance Alliance’s Performance Mix Festival has offered diverse emerging and mid-career artists an opportunity to share work with audiences in Manhattan. Annually, it offers this jam-packed program of local, national, and international artists with the direct aim to support the development of experimental works with the public. Performance Mix Festival (1986) was groundbreaking in that it was the only festival at that time exclusively dedicated to performance art in lower Manhattan. Its continued success is testimony to its vital necessity in New York’s cultural community.

About New Dance Alliance

Incorporated in 1989, New Dance Alliance (NDA) is a performing arts nonprofit. Its mission, from the earliest days, has been to support emerging experimental movement-based artists. NDA has made an explicit commitment to equity and inclusion by creating programs that center the work of artists from historically marginalized communities of color, LGBTQ artists, and artists with disabilities. NDA provides space, residencies, performance, and networking opportunities that help artists cultivate relationships, develop their artistry, and open doors to share their work in the US and internationally. NDA’s programs are: Performance Mix Festival, Black Artists Space to Create, LiftOff Residency, Satellite, Work Session, and Karen Bernard Projects. These programs support the work of more than 100 experimental artists and 2,500 audience members each year.
