National Sawdust Projects is the producing arm of National Sawdust. Originally conceived by Paola Prestini in 1999 at Juilliard, the company, formerly known as VisionIntoArt (VIA), serves as a multimedia production company that “facilitates flamboyant, confounding and enticing collaborations” (New York Times).
With the belief that collaboration sustains artistic innovation, National Sawdust Projects engages interdisciplinary experts, including scientist, filmmakers, musicians and beyond to develop artistically innovative projects that can be taken on tour around the world and introduce new audiences to the world of New Music.
National Sawdust Projects incubates and produces over a dozen new works every year. The goal of National Sawdust Projects is to break these productions out of the venue’s factory walls, present these pieces on a global stage and forging relationships between new audiences and the most innovative emerging and established artists living today.
