Scaffold Room at The Kitchen is curated and organized by Tim Griffin and Matthew Lyons.

Scaffold Room is made possible through grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Surdna Foundation, The Doris Duke Performing Arts Awards Audience Development program, and the MAP Fund (a program of Creative Capital supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), and the Poss Family Foundation. Scaffold Room is also made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MetLife Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as The New England Foundation for the Arts’ Production Residency for Dance Program, with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the James E. Robison Foundation, the Bossak Heilbrun Foundation; and individual donors.

Scaffold Room is a production of Cross Performance and MAPP International Productions. It was commissioned by The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN and was co-commissioned by Live Arts Bard at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College. Additional co-commissioning support has been provided by Maggie Allessee National Center for Choreography at Florida State University, and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC). The work was also developed through a residency at the Park Avenue Armory.

The Kitchen's production of Scaffold Room is made possible with support from the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts; The James E.
