PS122 Ascending

Play Video

This Summer PS122 staff got the chance to test drive an entirely new form of entertainment, a transcendent “mind ride” called The Ascent which was offering limited demonstrations in a warehouse in Sunset Park. In this video we follow our Artistic Director through his experience on the mind ride and sit down with the show’s creator, Yehuda Duenyas (Aka xxxy):

“For me what’s really interesting about it is that every ride is completely different and everybody’s personality really comes through in the ride and you see this beauty in people, framed in this mythic ascent.”
