New York City

Winter Festival

January 3 - 19, 2013

COIL is Performance Space 122’s annual winter performance festival full of contemporary, textured, global, local, contemplative, grounded, rigorous, and always very live performance.

“The beauty is in what we don’t yet know. Somehow – in some way – what you think and believe will be altered after diving in.” – Vallejo Gantner, Artistic Director of PS122

“Aimed at the head, the guts, and the heart.” – The New York Post

Performance Space 122 & BOMB Magazine present SPAN, four in-depth, interdisciplinary conversations between a COIL ’13 artist and a “non-performance” luminary. SPAN endeavors to reinsert performance into the cultural, economic, and environmental debates coursing through contemporary society, from which it is too often excluded.

 
January 15, 16, 17, 18 at 12pm daily
 

SPAN will be free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Extended dialogue beyond the conversation is encouraged online.
Major support for SPAN is provided by the Albert & Anne Mansfield Foundation.
Location:
Dixon Place
161-A Chrystie St., Manhattan

Full SPAN Schedule

The Red + White Party, co-hosted by PS122 + SPiN NYC.
