Synapse Arts - New Works is a way for choreographers to make dances. We provide (almost) everything they need to develop, rehearse, and premiere a new work.

The choreographers get rehearsal space, paid dancers, a performance venue, feedback sessions, a costume budget, marketing, technical staff, and all the administrative oversight that comes with putting together a show. 

We need your help to provide the special things that turn the final show into a great experience and future opportunities for these artists:

- a professional lighting designer, to transform the dances into performance works

- a professional videographer, to capture and edit the performances into grant-winning footage

- collaborator pay for the composers, video artists, costume designers, and live musicians who are making this the most artistically diverse New Works yet!

See more about us at www.synapsearts.com

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you at New Works, October 4 and 5, 2012, at the Hamlin Park Fieldhouse in Chicago!
