About The Performance Project
Encompassing music, dance, film, readings and public conversations, The Performance Project showcases performing arts visionaries, both local and global, with a special focus on greater visibility for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ voices.
On the occasion of our 30th anniversary, this initiative was conceived to further foreground the performing arts and will be housed in a newly dedicated space at our Downtown LA Arts District location, reaffirming our longstanding commitment to path-breaking creative expression.
All performances will take place at 901 East 3rd Street, Los Angeles CA 90013.
