Originally a single studio in the heart of Williamsburg at 118 N. 11th St., our organization was co-founded in 2000 by the former dance collective KICK|STANDance: Abby Bender, Cary Baker, Layla Childs, Anna Luckey, and Sonya Robbins. In 2005 with help from tech guru, Brian Aldous, Founding Director, Abby Bender, turned the studio into a convertible black box known as The Aldous Theater. Three years later, with Andrew Dickerson on board, we began to expand and build more rehearsal studios and in 2012, Becky Radway joined the team!
In 2015 after 15 years in Williamsburg, we moved to our current Greenpoint home with the help of so many friends, donors and funders. Under the leadership of our founding Artistic Director, Abby Bender, and then our co-Artistic Directors, Andy Dickerson and Becky Radway, Triskelion has blossomed into one of Brooklyn’s most valued centers for performing arts. More than 600 original productions have taken place on Triskelion’s stages and its patrons have used countless subsidized rehearsal and class hours. In 2019, we welcomed our new Artistic Director, Rachel Mckinstry.
