Show Box L.A. fosters an environment of connection, through artist-led projects and partnerships that respond to a need for ways to share work, ideas and resources among the dance community. We contribute to critical dialogue in Los Angeles about the art and legacy of dance – locally, and with artists around the country.
In Show Box L.A.’s ongoing efforts to support local choreographers, from 2016-2020 we focused on a project called we live in space, a rehearsal studio specifically for dance-based artists to deepen their creative practice. Through offering suitable space for residencies to choreographers, this studio project encouraged a substantial output of innovative new works. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the studio is now closed permanently.
In 2020-21, Show Box L.A. will continue our residency program for choreographers in partnership with other organizations.
