New York Live Arts is committed to furthering the creation of new work by artists at all stages of their careers. Through signature programs such as the 50 and Change Commission, Resident Commissioned Artist, Live Feed residencies and more, Live Arts provides artists with vital resources for research, development, and the creation of new dance and performance.

New York Live Arts' 50 and Change Commissions fund new work from some of the most forward-thinking artists working today.

The Resident Commissioned Artist program was created in 2011 by New York Live Arts to address what we perceive to be an overall lack of support for mid-career artists. The program is by-invitation only and offers a salary, health benefits, two years of residency time and a commission of a new work to premiere at New York Live Arts. Select works will then be chosen for a fully produced national and/or international tour managed by New York Live Arts.

The Live Feed creative residency program is a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward our theater. Informal public showings offer a sneak peek into each resident artist's process and ideas before they hit our stage. Each showing takes place within the intimate working space of the Live Arts studio and is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.
