Support New Works
30 years ago the New Performance Works Society (now known as New Works) was conceived in Barb Clausen’s kitchen with her friends: Fran Brafman, Leslie Fiddler, Janet Miller, Wendy Newman, Julie Poskitt, Katherine Scheidt, and Gina Sufrin - all accomplished performing arts leaders. The group wanted to create opportunities to share interesting music, dance, and theatre work with each other and Vancouver audiences.
From these humble beginnings, New Works has grown to be the heartbeat of a diverse dance community. New Works is a home for artists, audiences, volunteers, and cultural workers, with programs focused on helping each group grow and thrive within the dance milieu.
