COIL 2016
January 5 – 17

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.

“COIL 2016 attacks the very concept of boundaries and of limits. The boundaries between ideologies, life and death, the contemporary and historic, human and machine, light and darkness, audience and performer. Limitations of time, identity, age and geography disappear. The work we will see this year deals with evolutionary transformation – personal, social and artistic.

I am proud that the program includes so many artists whose work has never been seen in New York. It is our most ambitious festival, ever, and the very last outside of our home at 150 First Ave.” – Vallejo Gantner, Artistic Director

Red + White Party 2016

Gawker Media HQ, 2 West 17th Street, 2nd Floor, in Manhattan
 
PS122 invites you to the all new, revamped Red + White Party. With a new low ticket price, we’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of what makes NYC a special place in January and while past years have featured ping pong, we’re putting down our paddles, and picking up… karaoke microphones!
 
Teaming up with the Australia Council and the Australian Consulate-General in New York, The Red and White Party features Brisbane-based neo-tiki physical theatre company Polytoxic with their live-art karaoke party known the world around. Offering a total karaoke experience, you get a choice of some of the best pop hits from the past and present with a gang of backup dancers fit for the pros. DJ J.D. Franzke will spin the tunes to keep us moving all night long.
 
Single Ticket: $5

Australia and New York have a lot in common: the practices and artists we support, the audiences we engage with and the types of context we create.
 
For this COIL 2016, New York will get a taste of Australia’s exceptional independent arts scene through a program of works featuring Melbourne artists Helen Herbertson, Ranters Theatre and Brisbane’s Polytoxic, co-curated by Performance Space 122 and the City of Melbourne’s Arts House with generous support from the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts and the Australian Consulate-General in New York.
 
Through Australia Council for the Arts’ commitment to supporting this cultural exchange for a total of four years, PS122 will be presenting an extensive roster of Australian artists focused around the COIL Festival, a platform for international touring. As we begin year two of this international collaboration, we hope to open up a conversation that speaks to an ever-more globalized audience about communities formed around ideas and artistic possibility rather than geography or identity.

 

 

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

Mellon Foundation New York Theater Program, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, New York Community Trust and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
