Policies and Procedures

Dear Artists,

On behalf of Choreographers' Performance Alliance, I am excited to invite you to join us for the 39th year of the annual Works in the Works Performance Series!

Works in the Works has been giving emerging and established performing artists in our thriving community the opportunity to publicly show what they are working on since 1979. Whether your performance piece is in the early stages of development or is already well polished, we offer a safe space for you to show it, get feedback on it, and build your audience.

We are incredibly grateful to the diverse, thoughtful, and enthusiastic community we've fostered over all these years. The conversations held after each performance are led by celebrated Bay Area artists who have helped participants push their work into new territories, delve deeper on the road to the next phase, and go on to produce fully fleshed out performances.

We welcome you to join the 400-plus artists who have participated in Works in the Works for the last thrity-eight years! Up to six pieces will be shared per evening. Please see the below information on registering for our program this fall.
