Performance Space New York / PS122
Performance Space 122 (PS122) is one of New York’s ultimate destinations for cutting-edge theatre, dance, music, live art and multimedia. PS122 is dedicated to supporting and presenting artists who explore innovative form and provocative content and who rigorously challenge the boundaries of contemporary performance. PS122 is committed to a steadfast search for pioneering artists from a diversity of cultures, nations and beliefs. For over 30 years, PS122 has been a hub for contemporary performance and an active member of the East Village as well as the wider cultural community in New York City and across the globe. Under the curatorial vision of artistic directors Mark Russell (1985–2005), Vallejo Gantner (2005–2016), and Jenny Schlenzka (2016–present), PS122 has raised the curtain on more than 9,000 performances and supported the work of more than 7,200 artists, performers, choreographers, playwrights, directors and designers. PS122 passionately advocates for U.S. artists in New York City and across the world. Our organization and the artists we present are reclaiming their relevance to wider social discourse by engaging audiences and community leaders in cultural, economic and environmental debates about what it means to live in contemporary society.
