Eight Performing Artists in the Fields of Dance, Jazz and Theater Receive Doris Duke Artist Awards of Up to $275,000 Each, Totaling $2.2 Million in Unrestricted Funding to Performing Artists
The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) announced the names of the 2020 Doris Duke Artists, each receiving an award of $275,000 intended as an investment in and celebration of these artists and their ongoing contributions to the fields of contemporary dance, jazz and theater. A total of $250,000 of the prize is completely unrestricted, and $25,000 is dedicated to encouraging savings for retirement. The awards are not tied to specific projects; rather, they are available to artists to attend to important life needs that can help artists thrive. As one of many ways DDCF is upping its support to individual artists in response to the impacts of Covid-19 on the arts sector, the foundation is expanding the number of artists receiving Doris Duke Artist Awards to a total of eight for 2020, up from six the previous year.

PLEASE SUPPORT - People’s Space and Performance Space are now helping the AIRs raise funds to collectively purchase a home outside of NYC,
During the month of June, in the midst of the BLM protests in New York, Angel, Danyele, Donte, Rj, and Stev – the Artists in Residents (AIRs)—were invited by People’s Space — a group of artists from our 02020 initiative—to work with Performance Space New York. What started as a project to offer refuge for protesters quickly shifted to a mutual aid space for those facing houselessness. After securing temporary housing for the AIRs, it soon became apparent that the five artists needed a more permanent solution.
People’s Space and Performance Space are now helping the AIRs raise funds to collectively purchase a home outside of NYC, and to provide seed funding for their artistic careers. With your support, the AIRs will be able to secure both long-term housing for themselves and eventually other houseless, Black and trans artists.
Help us raise $60,000 by October 15 to lift up impacted communities and most of all, help keep them safe, sustained and supported!
The donation will not go to Performance Space; 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the AIRs.

A world premiere dance event, streamed live
Draw from Within
Sat, Sep 26 at 8pm
Rambert breaks new ground with its first live stream performance, created with Bessie Award-winning choreographer and filmmaker Wim Vandekeybus (Always the Same Lies, 1991 Next Wave). Incorporating the camera into the heart of the action, the UK-based dance company transforms its studio in London’s South Bank into a series of contrasting, vivid theatrical worlds for an exhilarating performance that traverses dreams, nightmares, and inverted realities.
This is a live event available only via streaming at the designated time.
Rambert’s company of artists, production staff, and technical teams have taken extensive precautions in order to work together safely and look forward to bringing the vitality—and uncertainty—of live performance directly to your home.
