Residencies at Pieter Parking Space

Located outdoors in The Box’s gated and spacious parking lot, with design and construction by Pieter Community member John Emison, and a materials donation from our friends at NAVEL, we are building a wheelchair-accessible, sprung wooden dance platform with multiple potential configurations that we are fondly calling Pieter Parking Space.

Reminiscent of Pieter founder Jmy James Kidd’s Gold Stage, hosted at The Hammer Museum as part of Made in LA 2014, this platform will be home to six 6-week residencies beginning this September 2021 through June 2022. The first two artists in residence will be our 2020 Pieter Dancemaker Grantees: Ana María Alvarez and Stacy Dawson Stearns.

The remaining four residency slots, which will each include public programming opportunities, will be open to local movement artists via a public application and committee-review process.

This program is made possible in part by grants from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, and the California Arts Council.
