ARCOS experiments rigorously to discover adventurous new forms of contemporary performance—inspired by questioning dominant understandings of the world, turbulent processes of traditions in flux, and the complexity of being human today. They have been invited to present work at MacCallum, SITE Santa Fe, CURRENTS International New Media Festival, {254} Dancefest, Barnstorm Festival, and a critically acclaimed, award-winning production at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. ARCOS has received artistic residency at Colorado College, Texas State University, Connecticut College, University of Colorado Boulder, Playa Summerlake, Ucross Foundation, University of North Texas, and KHN Center for the Arts, and received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New Mexico Arts, Donors Trust, Hatchfund, Rea Charitable Trust, Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation, and the City of Austin. ARCOS also offers professional-level training classes, performance intensives, development workshops, and grants to independent artists and youth.
