Performance Production Program

One of the most important roles OtB plays is helping artists develop new projects. The Performance Production Program allows us to provide artists with resources and support in the form of commissioning fees, rehearsal space, mentoring, advocacy and technical residencies with one of the best production departments in the United States.

In past seasons, Alan Sutherland, zoe | juniper, Ezra Dickinson, Markeith Wiley, Jerome A. Parker/Andrew Russell, Tim Smith-Stewart/Jeffrey Azevedo, Jessica Jobaris & General Magic, Heather Kravas, Kristen Kosmas/Paul Willis/Peter Ksander, and Rashaun Mitchell/Silas Reiner/Charles Atlas developed and presented new works directly supported through this program.

Special thanks to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and all our funders who support the creation of new performance.
