Space Grant Program
The Space Grant Program is designed to give Brooklyn & Queens based dance, theater and performance artists the opportunity to create new work in a setting that is conducive to working deeply and exploring new territory.
BAX offers two different types of Space Grants. Grant #1 (Summer) is a work period, Grant #2 (Fall) includes a performance component. Both Space Grants include 100 hours of free rehearsal space. Summer space grantees will participate in a show & tell Tuesday August 9 7-9 p.m. showing 5-10 minutes of work developed and participating in a conversation with other space grantees, Executive Director Marya Warshaw and BAX staff. Fall Space Grantees will have an interim showing Saturday November 5 from 2-4 p.m.
