This theatre set in a former schoolhouse has been committed to fostering new artists and their far-out ideas since its inception in 1979. Its two stages have hosted such now-known performers as Meredith Monk, Eric Bogosian and the late Spalding Gray, and it’s also home to dance shows, film screenings and various festivals for up-and-coming talents.

Currently PS 122 is undergoing a massive transformation as it creates new state-of-the-art performance spaces and adds additional artist studios, a new lobby and a roof deck. There will also be an outdoor light installation called Inhale/Exhale that will give a gentle pulse to the whole building, making it appear alive. PS 122 is scheduled to reopen in mid-2016.
