The Industry

Fund: $25,000

The Industry is an independent, artist-driven multidisciplinary opera company creating experimental productions that expand the definition of opera. Through ambitious interdisciplinary collaborations in new contexts, it produces works that defy boundaries and inspire new audiences for the art form. The Industry sees its role in the art community as both providing a platform for large-scale artistic experiments that provoke questions and dialogue and serving as an incubator for emerging artists, composers, and musical talent predominantly based in Los Angeles County. As an artist-driven company, a core part of its mission is to support artists and develop their careers and professional opportunities. With each production, it establishes a micro-economy serving the independent music and arts workers in LA.
