Careers

In the spirit of encouraging an attitude of inquiry and openness necessary in a generative society, Performance Space 122 (PS122) invites audiences to engage in live experiences that can have profound and unpredictable effects. 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.

Beginning in 2011, PS122 embarked on one of the most significant and potentially radical shifts in our 35-year history, including a restructuring of artist support, a business model overhaul, and the renovation of our theaters in the shared 122 Community Center. As we return to our spaces at 150 First Avenue, this is a very exciting time for PS122 and for our community of artists and audience members.
