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:

COIL is Performance Space 122’s annual performance festival that demonstrates the constant vitality of live performance in New York City featuring work created locally, across the US and around the world.

“This year we focus on transformational times of tremendous blurring between artforms, identities, how we participate and engage and whole new ways of creating. Technology plays a part – but there is far more than that going on. We interact, we participate, we see audiences creating the work itself.

COIL itself – now in its 10th iteration – is a prime example of transformation. Originally created as a showcase program of the previous year’s dance work for an audience of international professional curators, producers, artistic directors – it has evolved into a vital event for local audiences, artists, and still these professionals to highlight work from across dance, theater, music, performance, media and indeed virtual art.

We are delighted to present the COIL Festival 2015 to you. Come often, dive all the way in and make it your own.” – Vallejo Gantner, Artistic Director

What’s your most OUTHERE moment?

We asked this question to some attendees of our season launch party and their answers ranged from swimming in underwater caves to face punching at mosh pits. What’s been the most OUTHERE moment in your life?

Join the conversation by sharing photo or video stories about your most OUTHERE moments by tagging @PS122 with the hashtag #OUTHERE on instagram and twitter.

CONTEST ALERT: We’ll randomly pick one OUTHERE video and photo to feature each month! Featured videos and photos receive a ticket to a COIL show and some serious brownie points.
