The Performance Project @ University Settlement provides established, emerging and young artists with opportunities to connect to local audiences and enrich each others' lives. Our aim is to encourage greater participation in the live arts and to help cultivate a diverse creative community on the Lower East Side.  Our exciting performance events take place in intimate and historic Speyer Hall, a cultural landmark in the heart of the neighborhood.

Ticket Prices, unless otherwise noted:

$15 adults/$10 for students and seniors
$5 for youth 18 and under

Your ticket purchases help subsidize tickets for families in-need and help make the arts accessible for all.


The Performance Project @ University Settlement is located at the corner of Eldridge Street and Rivington Street. F to Second Avenue, B/D to Grand Street, J/M/Z to Essex Street.

The Performance Project's three resident companies, Kinematic Dance Theater, Trusty Sidekick and The Panoply Performance Laboratory, present their works-in-process, and share their creative process with other guest artists. Join us for performances, workshops, and reflection upon the experiences of artists intentionally working within communities that have limited exposure to the arts. This festival is co-curated by Nellie Perera, Director of Arts in Education at Henry Street Settlement and The Performance Project's curator, Alison Fleminger.
