DANCENOW / NOW: The Dandelion Project

Joe’s Pub at The Public: September 6, 7, 8, 9, 2023  at 7pm

After a three-year hiatus from live performance, DANCE NOW (DN) will return to Joe’s Pub at The Public, Wednesday, September 6 through Saturday, September 9, 2023. Celebrating its 20th annual season at Joe’s Pub, DN resumes its place right after Labor Day, kicking off the fall New York City dance season. DN will present in its traditional festival-like format, placing young, established, and mature voices side by side to offer 5-minute or less bite-size gems. Reimagining the new and evolving needs of today’s dance artists and their audiences, post the pandemic in a ‘new and now’ moment, DN returns in 2023 as DANCENOW / NOW to feature a presentation of all new works, commissioned from a diverse roster of 25 artists. The four-day run will offer two different programs of 11 artists each night, hosted by Deborah Lohse as TruDEE. The season will include a promotional film, ‘The Dandelion Project’, created by Katherine Helen Fisher and Shimmy Boyle of Safety Third Productions. The film will tell the story of the DN community during these past three years as COVID scattered and reseeded them across the country, and the globe, affecting their careers, creative process, and lifestyles. Performances will take place at Joe’s Pub at the Public at 7 pm. The pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street at Astor Place in New York City.


Tickets are $30 at the box office at The Public. A per-ticket service fee applies when purchased through the Joe’s Pub at The Public website. Fees, are waived when buying in person at the Taub Box Office and for all Public Theater Supporters, Supporter Plus, Young Partners, and Partners.
