Span 2015

SPAN is PS122’s annual discussion series based around theory and practice, the role of criticism and collaborative relationship forming within the ecosystem of the New York City performance industry. The two events of SPAN 2015 will be an Open Space and a Conversation/Mixer.

Span 2015 is curated by Lucy Jackson.

Jan 12 at 4pm: Open Space


Open Space is a collaborative conference that offers the power to the participants. That means that any question you have burning in your heart or digging away in the corner of your mind or can be opened up for debate, discussion and dissection by the hive-mind that is an open space conference.
Open Space is a process for supporting people to self-organize and collaborate around any question with opportunities for group discussions on topics proposed and curated by the attendees themselves. Participants are free to move between discussions, debating or spectating as they choose. Open Space as a constructive and inclusive platform was pioneered in the UK by the theater company Improbable. RSVP HERE.

Jan 17 at 3pm: Conversation/Mixer


Conversation/Mixer is a two-part event, opening with 20 Questions for a Good Conversation, a curated question and answer session conducted between a small panel and an audience. 20 Questions was created by the founders of Forest Fringe. Provocations to panelists and audiences range from the concrete to the abstract. The evening culminates with a good old-fashioned mixer with music and wine, fueled by new ideas, new friends and renewed energy. RSVP HERE.

Everyone at PS122 was saddened to hear of the passing of Helen Weiss, a regular attendee and participant in PS122’s shows in the East Village. Her daughter Holly sent us this note:

“It is with a sad heart that I advise you of the passing on 11/4/14 of my mom, Helen Weiss, whom you all knew to be the vibrant and spunky 91-year-old, 5-foot tall gray-haired lady with the walker who high-kicked and gyrated her way to fame at many Avant-Garde-a-Rama “40 Second Street” performances and also attended other P.S. 122 performances.”

To remember Helen, we all re-watched this video of her energetic performance in a recent Avant-Garde-Arama:
