PS122 is glad to announce that the COIL Festival has been extended! Young Jean Lee’s Untitled Feminist Show, Temporary Distortion’s Newyorkland, and the TEAM’s Mission Drift will all play through February 4. Tickets for this extension go on sale January 15.
This annual winter festival features 11 premieres from critical US and international artists. The presentations are socially engaged, visceral, and groundbreaking. The festival spans 25 days, all genres of performance and takes place in 8 different venues across NYC. Untitled Feminist Show In Young Jean Lee's latest experiment, UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW, six charismatic stars of the downtown theater, dance, cabaret, and burlesque worlds come together to invite the audience on an exhilarating, nearly wordless journey through expressions of a fluid and limitless sense of identity. The Twin Cities Daily Planet writes, "You may weep, or you may laugh, but you won't be bored, and—I don't think I've ever said this about a show before—you won't leave the theater unchanged...This is an essential theater-going experience." January 12 - February 4, 2012 Baryshnikov Arts Center, Jerome Robbins Theater 450 West 37th Street, Manhattan, New York For more information and tickets, please visit http://www.ps122.org/performances/untitled_feminist_show.html
Newyorkland An intertextual assemblage, Newyorkland combines popular cop movies and TV police procedurals with first-person accounts from real-life police officers. Acclaimed director Kenneth Collins and prominent video artist William Cusick merge visual and performance art, documentary realism, cinema verite, and pure fiction as they follow four police officers struggling with the high costs of working within the demanding, dangerous, and secretive society of the NYPD.

Mission Drift Mission Drift is a critically acclaimed contemporary musical that journeys west through time and space in pursuit of the soul of American capitalism. Amidst a score that fuses Vegas glitz with Western ballads, seductive storyteller Miss Atomic interweaves the epic saga of two immortal Dutch teens with an intimate portrait of a cocktail waitress and a cowboy in this political and urgent work about creation and destruction, bankruptcy and bonanza, and the crumbling myth of an eternal frontier.
