Core Programs

MAPP International's interconnected programs cross art forms, cultures and borders in an ongoing exploration of art, process, life and community.

New Works
We prioritize the creation of artworks that open people's minds, implicating them in both present reality and future change. As producers of work acorss all performing arts disciplines, we take a holistic approach that responds to the artist's creative imperative. Starting with incisive planning before reherarsals begin, we are active in every phase of an artist's project, from concept through premiere and tour. Our efforts ensure that artists have the time, resources and expertise to successfully realize their full vision and that thier work reaches engaged public audiences.

Community Engagement and Public Humanities
As each MAPP International project develops, we devise and pilot activities that bring the public into the ideas of the work long before it reaches the stage. We create opportunities for dialogues that connect artists with people in diverse communities and expose different communities to each other. Our goal is not only to increase understanding of specific artistic projects, but also to build wider appreciation for artists as cultural thought leaders, and to stimulate a real exchange of views between creators and audiences about cultural and contemporary society. These programs include both NYC-local programs, and residency programs available for artists on tour. For specific information about our community programs that are available for artists while on tour, please visit our "Artist in Community" page.

MAPP on Tour
With considerable expertise and a global network of theaters, art centers, universities and festivals, we move artists and their works across borders and cultures without relying on their commercial potential. We work globally to ensure that the work and ideas of international contemporary performing artists are available to communities across the U.S.

Consortia
As an active leader and collaborator many cultural organizations and individuals in the arts, we partner with others to establish networks for the creation and presentation of work; to promote international exchange; to ground artists' projects in communities; and to advocate for the strategic role of producer in the contemporary performing arts field.
