Congrats to the 2019-2021 Fresh Tracks Artists: Anh Vo, Jordan Demetrius Lloyd, Annie Heath, Kayla Hamilton and Stuart B. Meyers under the tutelage of their advisor nia love.

New York Live Arts’ Fresh Tracks Residency & Performance program is a season-long residency for emerging movement-based artists in support of new work creation and professional development. This season marks the 57th year of Fresh Tracks which was a signature program of Dance Theater Workshop created in 1965 to bring new choreographic artistry to the forefront.

The 2021-2022 season will unroll the revamped version of Fresh Tracks:

  • Live Arts will produce a new work in the theater in the shared program developed during the residency.
  • The professional development workshops and meetings will in part focus on applying learned knowledge and skills towards the shared production.   

Five artists will be selected for the program who will receive a 50-hour studio residency, $3000 fee, working with Artistic Advisor nia love, take part in professional development workshops led by renowned professionals from the field, exclusive access to Live Arts’ Communications, Development, Production and Programming staff, a Live Core Artist Membership and a fully-produced shared program in the New York Live Arts theater.  To learn more about Fresh Tracks guidelines, please click here.

In an effort to create a safe environment, Live Arts will ask everyone who participates in the auditions for Fresh Tracks to either be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID test.

People who are considered fully vaccinated are
2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

People who are not vaccinated will have to submit a negative diagnostic PCR test within 72 hours of the on-site activities or a negative antigen Rapid test within 6 hours of on-site activities.
