About NYU Skirball
NYC’s Home for Cutting-edge Performance and Discourse
NYU Skirball holds close James Baldwin’s dictum that "artists are here to disturb the peace." We invite adventurous, unorthodox productions and pioneering artists, scholars, and game-changers to our stage to offer audiences uncommon offerings that can, and often do, reshape and expand worldviews. Our mission is to present work that inspires yet frustrates, confirms yet confounds, entertains yet upends. We proudly embrace renegade artists, academics, and thought-leaders who are courageous, outrageous, and mind-blowing. We are NYU’s largest classroom. We want to feed your head. Because if we don’t, who will?
