American Realness

SUPPORT AR 2017

Become a member of the House of Realness!

Since 2010, American Realness has presented adventurous new dance and performance at the Abrons Arts Center and venues around the city for the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters’ conference. The program has been instrumental in helping participating artists generate over one million dollars of new revenue from national and international performance engagements. Additionally the program has been recognized as “a nexus of smart, cutting-edge performance” by The New York Times, was cited in ArtForum’s Best of Dance 2010.

BUT HONEY, LETS GET REAL…

While the program receives unparalleled administrative, marketing and other in-kind support from Abrons Arts Center and has received generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we depend on the help of our donors to make this event the spectacular convening of artists and audiences that it is. I invite you to become a member of the House of Realness and help change the game for this game-changing program.

A donation of any size grants you membership to the House of Realness. All donors are invited to the Opening Night Toast to kick off the festival at 5pm on Thursday January 5th at Abrons Arts Center. Donors of $100 or more can recieve reserved seats for any festival performances they attend (tickets sold separately). Donations are fully tax-deductible when made through Gibney Dance.

DONATE NOW!

I hope you will join me and become a member of House of Realness.
I sincerely thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you at performances!

Much love,
