Performance Space 122 is a not-for-profit arts center serving the New York City dance and performance community. P.S.122 is committed to supporting the development of work by individual artists who create live art with an authentic vision. We are fully dedicated to finding, developing, and bringing to the public eye artistic creations from a diversity of cultures, points of view, ages, and sexual orientations. P.S.122 advocates innovation. The work it supports challenges artistic forms, traditional contexts, and content as a means of revealing truth.
P.S.122's primary concern is supporting artists' individual creative process. We encourage artistic investigations by providing creators with rehearsal space, workshop space, constructive criticism, performance opportunities and challenging audiences.
P.S.122 further supports its mission by providing national and international touring opportunities to exemplary works developed under its auspices. Linking communities through the medium of live art, P.S.122 seeks to facilitate communication between artists and communities, at its home space and on the road.
