About

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 presented work at MacCallum, SITE Santa Fe, Currents International New Media Festival, {254} Dancefest, Online Performance Art Festival, BarnStorm DanceFest, CounterCurrent, and a critically acclaimed, award-winning production at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. ARCOS has received artistic residency at Colorado College, Texas State University, Connecticut College’s Ammerman Center for Art and Technology, University of Colorado Boulder, University of North Texas, Playa Summerlake, Ucross Foundation, and Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New Mexico Arts, Mid-America Arts Alliance, 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.
