Through the Fresh Tracks Performance and Residency Program, New York Live Arts provides an opportunity for new artistic voices to gain professional experience and recognition. Each year six early career artists are selected by a panel through a live audition process. Artists selected receive research, development, and performance support.
Fresh Tracks engages artists directly with peers, arts professionals and Live Arts staff in dialogues about their work within the context of the professional contemporary dance and performance field. In the spring, following their initial performances, each member of the group receives a 50-hour creative residency along with introductory level professional development workshops in marketing, fundraising and career development.
