Join us for the final installations, performances, and presentations of our fifth year of EMERGENYC, the Hemispheric New York Emerging Performers Program. As a part of the Institute’s Hemispheric New York initiative, the Emerging Performers Program aims to support the development of emerging New York-based artists whose work functions as a vehicle for political expression and social change, and who examine the broad range of identities, practices and histories of the Americas through genres such as performance art, spoken word, theatre, dance, street performance, visual arts, film, political cabaret, video performance, "laughtivism," and others.
