2014 marks ten years since the formation of Moving Theater and the start of Brennan's and Ryan's collaboration. Please join us in celebrating this decade-long creative partnership by making a tax-deductible contribution to the development of new work now.

Your contribution supports projects by Gerard & Kelly over the next 18 months, including a solo exhibition in March 2014 at The Kitchen, as well as performances and events in New York, Los Angeles, and beyond. You will also be invited this spring to X, a one-night-only event featuring 10 performers from 10 projects of the past 10 years.

Moving Theater is a nonprofit organization founded in 2003 by artists Brennan Gerard and Ryan Kelly to fill a crucial niche between the performing and visual arts in the cultural landscape of New York. Moving Theater supports deliberately discipline-defying, frontier-crossing projects through artistic residencies and co-productions, creating sustainable environments for artistic growth and expanding public access to the creative process.
