Elevator Project

2021 Season

We are pleased to announce the 2020/2021 season of The Elevator Project, featuring the diverse work of small and emerging arts groups performing on the Center’s campus in the Dallas Arts District. The Elevator Project’s new season will feature productions from eight Dallas-based performing arts companies:

The art forms include dance, theatre, music, multi-media, and several explore themes of race, gender and LGBTQ equality. The performances will take place in Hamon Hall in the Winspear Opera House, 6th Floor Studio Theatre in the Wyly Theatre, or outdoors in Sammons Park or Strauss Square.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 restrictions, the entire 2020/2021 season will be performed next year in 2021. Exact dates will be announced later.

The Elevator Project is a passion for us at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Despite the pandemic crisis, the Center is committed to moving forward with this innovative, exciting and very relevant work, following all CDC guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our artists, staff, and patrons.

This is the sixth season of The Elevator Project which started in 2014 to provide much- needed performance space in the Arts District. Each season is curated by a five-person peer-review panel of arts professionals and advocates. Some of the guiding criteria include an emphasis on new works, diverse genres, themes, artists, and ethnic art forms; unusual use of performance space; supporting groups without a home; and more. 33 groups or artists submitted applications for the 2020/2021 season.

The Elevator Project is presented with support from the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, Texas Commission on the Arts, National Endowment of the Arts and TACA.
