The artist’s experience is given top priority through our professional atmosphere and remuneration, and their process is enhanced through the reaction of our adventurous audiences. Dixon Place is a local haven for creativity as well as an international model for the open exploration of the process of creation.
After spawning Dixon Place as a salon in her Paris apartment in ‘85, Artistic Director Ellie Covan pioneered the organization in her NYC living room for 23 years. After organic development & expansion, DP is now a leading professional, state-of-the-art facility for artistic expression. While other venues of its kind have since died off, or now only present established artists, Dixon Place remains at the heart of the New York experimental performance scene.
Covan has received a NY Dance & Performance Award (a Bessie), two Obies, a BAXten Award & the NY Innovation Theater Foundation’s Stewardship Award for service to the community. DP has also received CUNY’s Edwin Booth Award, & the Alliance of NY State Arts Organization’s Celebrate the Arts Award for outstanding contributions to NYC.
