AVANT-GARDE-ARAMA

AVANT-GARDE-ARAMA

Avant-Garde-Arama is Performance Space 122’s biannual mini-festival of performance, dance, music, film, installations and general mayhem. A.G.A brings together emerging and established artists in all disciplines to show off their newest stuff in 8 minutes or less. It was P.S. 122’s first programmed event and has been going strong for 25 years. This April the theme is “Family Values” and will be hosted by downtown it-boy of the moment MR. MURRAY HILL.

Avant-Garde-Arama promotes a free-wheeling festival atmosphere where anything can happen. A special, trademark event of each Avant-Garde-Arama is “Forty Second Street” where, just after intermission, anybody who wants to perform can get up and do their things for 40 seconds!
