At this moment Performance Space 122 finds itself in the middle of one of our most exciting periods of transition in the organization’s history. Our East Village home of over 30 years is undergoing a much-needed renovation, supported primarily by the City of New York, to dramatically upgrade the 19th Century building that is also home to Mabou Mines, Painting Space 122, and the AIDS Service Center of New York.
In the fall of 2011 PS122 moved our offices to Greenpoint, Brooklyn and began presenting performance in partnership with peer organizations and venues across NYC. We rented out our spaces at 150 1st Avenue to Silence! The Musical as well for rehearsals, workshops and other productions. Michel Groisman performed at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, Cuqui Jerez performed at The Performing Garage in Soho in partnership with Crossing the Line and our annual winter festival, COIL, in January came to life in 8 different spaces across the city including 150 1st Ave. as both of the theaters were still operational. Spring 2012 will be all uptown, and beginning in fall 2012 – as the interior construction on the building begins – we will operate fully outside of the building.
We are not closed…quite the opposite actually!
PS122’s board of directors and staff are all energized by the opportunity to spread our roots far and wide, all the while keeping our sights on the future, including the return to two new ADA compliant theaters with increased seating capacity, higher ceilings, state-of-the-art equipment and a designated lobby for our patrons in our 2014/15 Season.
Connecting with us by visiting our website, signing up for our E-newsletters, or joining us on Facebook & Twitter is the best way to stay up to date with information about upcoming performances & special events.
