Meet Jill Hockett, a dance curator at the Tank! Jill organizes the monthly dance series XYZ NYC (for more information about the series, follow XYZ’s Tumblr!), a competitive series with an open signup process that allows choreographers and dancers one week to come up with a new piece; the audience will then vote for their favorite, and one lucky group will ultimately be given the opportunity to premiere a brand-new, full-length dance piece for a two-night run right here at the Tank! This program features the work of over 50 choreographers and dancers in the New York area each year, and is one of the central pieces our programming.
Jill’s work is emblematic the central mission of the Tank: to offer space to new and upcoming artists who seek to create boundary-pushing work and reach new audiences. By offering free performance and rehearsal space in the heart of New York City, we allow artists the opportunity to have their work seen and to launch their careers to even greater success. But we can’t do it without your help. Donate $25 today to support progressive artists like those featured in XYZ NYC, and that donation will be doubled! Support from people like you is what keeps the Tank going.
