Since the 1990s, the In Performance series at Susan Hess Modern Dance has highlighted the creative experiments of performing artists across disciplines: dance, music, theatrical monologue, filmmaking, and visual arts.

Often featuring collaborations between artists of different disciplines, these showings have encouraged artistic interactions and encouraged audiences to consider the broad palette of possibilities in contemporary dance and performing arts.

For choreographers in the Choreographers Project residency program, In Performance is a vehicle to show their latest pieces or selections from works they are refining, and to share insights into their artistic development with the public in a congenial, “laboratory” setting.

We encourage audiences to ask the artists any and all questions about their work.
