For the past six weeks, PS122’s new residency program RAMP has been full roll at The Chain Theatre in Long Island City. We gave three New York City based artists – Molly Lieber & Eleanor Smith, Glass Ghost, Kaneza Schaal – money, time and space to start creating new work.
The results were greater than what we imagined. Not only were the artists able to expand on thoughts or try out risky new ideas, audiences were able to see the seedling of a new work. PS122 presents fully produced works from all over the world, yet RAMP allows us to support the beginning stages of a piece of an artist from our home city.
Thanks to you for coming out, sharing a beer and your opinions with us. Special thanks to the artists for sharing their work at such an early stage. Below are some highlights from the residencies. Share yours on our facebook, twitter or instagram. (Feel free to just tag us in everything @PS122 #RAMP)
