For over 35 years, Performance Space 122 has been at the forefront of live performance in the United States, commissioning and presenting a remarkable array of new and innovative theater, dance, new music, new media and performance. New York City audiences and the national sector see it as a bellwether for contemporary culture – a place where many artists carve out their style, practice and develop their distinct voice.

PS122′s New York City home is now undergoing a long-planned renovation, scheduled to complete in 2016. Our programming has expanded to take place all over New York City in collaboration with other venues and in found spaces. Our reach has been expanding even further with PS122 GLOBAL, a program exposing international audiences to new work from New York City artists. The 2015/16 season brings GLOBAL to new faraway lands. Pack your bags and join us on our travels!
