Pivot Arts and Loyola University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will support the development of innovative performance projects in our 2017 incubator program. Applications are due Monday, October 24, 2016. We look forward to hearing your ideas!

The incubator program will provide artists and companies with time and space at Loyola University Chicago’s Mundelein Center to develop performance works that are in some way innovative and unique. We recognize that many artists and companies would like more time to develop ideas but are hindered by the inability to pay for rehearsal space or by the realities of meeting performance deadlines. The incubator program allows a group of artists complete freedom to play and explore without some traditional constraints. Note, that in addition to providing space, Pivot Arts staff engage artists in a dialogue about their work in hopes of supporting the development of each project. Generally three projects are selected for participation and there is a public showing of works-in-progress on Monday, March 27, 2017.
