Yve Laris Cohen P.S.122
- March 8-11 8pm
- World Premiere
Traversing dance and visual art, Laris Cohen’s work explores the relationship between the two fields, tracking their overlapping and divergent techniques and structures of support. He often focuses on the specific architectural and economic conventions of the black box, white cube, and sprung floor. For the opening of Performance Space New York’s new theater, Laris Cohen’s new work, P.S.122, maps aesthetic and political fault lines among the building’s tenants over the past 40 years, bringing discrete groups into ambivalent collaboration.
P.S.122 was commissioned by Performance Space New York and made possible with support from the Howard Gilman Foundation, Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
