In this decade, leading up to Northrop’s 100-year anniversary in 2029, the Northrop Centennial Commissions project helps create new dance works to ensure that there will be amazing performances far into the future. The Northrop Centennial Commissions (2019-2023) include: SW!NG OUT, Martha Graham Dance Company (Canticle for Innocent Comedians), Paul Taylor Dance Company ((work by Peter Chu), Joffrey Ballet (Of Mice and Men), GALLIM (film, BOAT), Ragamala Dance Company (Fires of Varanasi), State Ballet of Georgia (dance film), Limón Dance Company (work by Raúl Tamez), and Dance Theatre of Harlem (Higher Ground).

With your support, Northrop’s Centennial Commissions program provides:

  • The creation and presentations of exquisite new works
  • Opportunities for students, youth, and communities to experience transformative arts
  • Connections through art that will be shared for generations
  • Arts programming for youth arts and education programs
  • A deeper understanding and insight about art, self-expression, and communication through discussions with artists, inspiring the community and young people.
