HATCH Presenting Series was created in the Spring of 1997 in response to the need in the dance field for a cost-free space that enables emerging choreographers to investigate new work, present works-in-progress and engage in dialogue with the audience, free from financial pressure and the scrutiny of critical response.
This program presents Saturday evening performances each year sectioned into Fall and Spring series. The emerging choreographers who participate in the HATCH Series vary in age, perspective and technique. The Works believes that each of their voices deserves a platform for mentorship and performance. The dances offered range from solo to group pieces, some accompanied by live music or actors. The series has presented over 1,000 choreographic works.
Presentations for the HATCH Series occur October/November for the Fall and April/May for the Spring series.
2018 Spring HATCH dates are March 31st, April 14th, April 28th, and May 12th. Please stay tuned for Fall 2018 dates!
Performances are held at The Works Studio, 131 West 24th Street, 4th Floor, New York City.
