Performance Space 122’s Ramp residency program is designed to foster the creation of ambitious, new work from New York City-based emerging artists working across genres, perspectives and cultures. With this residency, PS122 not only provides the space needed to work but also technical assistance, commissioning fees, marketing support as well as the confidence to make bold moves in new directions.
PS122’s Ramp 2017 will feature composer and performer Justin Hicks and choreographer Tess Dworman.
For over 35 years, PS122 had invited audiences to engage in live experiences that can have profound and unpredictable effects in order to foster the spirit of inquiry and openness necessary in a generative society. We produce these experiences by providing contemporary artists who represent diverse genres, cultures, and perspectives with the resources and platforms to develop and present new works.
Each residency will culminate with a free, public showing. Details and reservation information for each showing will be released two weeks prior.
Performance Space 122’s RAMP 2017 artists’ work is developed by Performance Space 122 with commissioning support from the Jerome Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Dance programming support provided by Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Harkness Foundation for Dance and Jerome Robbins Foundation. RAMP 2017 residency support provided by Park Avenue Armory.
