JOE’S PUB AT THE PUBLIC

Our 15 year partnership with Joe’s Pub at The Public has provided vital creative stimulus to our artist base, resulting in the development of numerous new and acclaimed works. In 2011, and in sync with the The Public's stature an unrivaled development theater, Joe’s Pub became our home base. 

Our DANCE NOW Joe's Pub programming, including our signature FESTIVAL series and Dance-mopolitan Commissioned Artist Series challenges artists to investigate new directions through the unique limitations of the pub’s intimate cabaret setting.
