The proceeds from this evening will directly support Performance Space 122 and The Spalding Gray Award. Admission to this event is NOT part of the P.S. 122 membership plan.
Performance Space 122 is dedicated to supporting and presenting artists whose work challenges the traditional boundaries of dance, theatre, music, and performance. Committed to exploring innovative form as well as material, P.S. 122 is steadfast in its search for pioneering artists from a diversity of cultures and points of view. The proceeds from this event will directly support the mission and future of our beloved and vital institution.
The Spalding Gray Award is a new commissioning award created in his honor by Performance Space 122 and the UCLA Live Arts Program. The Award will support gifted writer/performers who fully realize both aspects of Spalding's legacy, who are fearless innovators of theatrical form, who reach into daily experience and create resonant, transcendent work that makes us all bigger, wider, wiser and, somehow, more than we were when we entered the theater. The recipient will be announced at The Gala and receive a full production of his or her work during the upcoming season at P.S. 122.
Leftover Stories to Tell is a program of both classic work and previously unheard stories, writing and journal entries by Spalding Gray. This very special production, created by Kathleen Russo, his widow, and Lucy Sexton, will make its world premiere at P.S. 122 from May 31 - June 4.
