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
