BRIC’s performing arts programs bring together Brooklyn’s diverse communities of artists and audiences for lively, energetic exchanges that celebrate creativity and engagement. When BRIC House opens in fall 2013, our performing arts programs are ready to take off!
Launched in 1979 as a catalyst for a Brooklyn performing arts scene and to bring people back into Prospect Park after years of neglect, Celebrate Brooklyn! is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals attracting 250,000 attendees from across New York City to the Prospect Park Bandshell each summer. In 2011, Celebrate Brooklyn expanded to Brooklyn Bridge Park with a series of free, dj’ed dance parties.
A series of 7-to-10 day residencies in BRIC Studio offer emerging and established local artists an opportunity to develop new work and share their process with local audiences through informal showings and moderated discussions.
Capitalizing on BRIC’s unique mix of visual art, media and performing arts programs, BRICs multidisciplinary programs – including the Fireworks Residency and the Stoop Series— foreground collaboration across disciplines and make space for the creation of new hybrid artworks.
BRIC’s performing arts embraces the role of the artist and the community in the leadership of the organization. Through long-term relationships with local artists, including both process time and performance opportunities, we provide a welcoming home for diverse voices.
