The Construction Company presents new and innovative work by dance, music and graphic artists. The organization began in 1970 as the Barbara Gardner Construction Company. In 1972 the name was changed to The Construction Company when it found its first home on LaGuardia place near the NYU campus. Since that time it has produced the work of innumerable emerging experimental choreographers. In its current space at 10 East 18th Street it has added contemporary music programming as well as gallery presentations of the work of visual artists.
In 2010, The Construction Company will be celebrating its 40th year of existence.
