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.

“We are all in transformational times – PS122 preparing to return to our home at 150 First Ave – but also in a time 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

Nath Ann Carrera plays music that straddles queer sexual/contextual history, while Nica Ross’ Ass-Troll Projections combine a pastiche of found films, homemade porn, and YouTube clips.
 
Single Ticket: $30

SPAN
Conversation Series
Co-presented with The Invisible Dog Art Center
 
The Invisible Dog Art Center
51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn
January 12 & 17
FREE; Reservations Recommended (will open Nov. 17)
 
SPAN is a 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.
 
Jan 12 at 4pm: Open Space is a process for supporting people to self-organize and collaborate around any question. An opportunity 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 for the performance industry in the UK by Improbable. www.devotedanddisgruntled.com
 
Jan 17 at 3pm: 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 and ranges from the concrete to the abstract as pro vocations to panelists and audience. The evening culminates with a good old fashioned mixer with music and wine, fueled by new ideas, new friends and renewed energy.
 
SPAN 2015 is curated by Lucy Jackson.
 


*Maximum (2) tickets may be redeemed per performance. Some restrictions apply. Questions? ps122.org/support or call 212-477-5829 x.302.
