The art’s organization Performance Space 122 is seeking 120 kid’s between ages 8 and 12 to volunteer for 1 of 4 performances, containing 30 kids per show. The show is for the Coil Festival that Performance 122 puts on yearly, going on now until January 22nd. Coil Festival explores the importance of live performance in NYC through contemporary artists from diverse genres, cultures, and perspectives.
Your child would be performing in a unique piece being presented in the festival from January 9th through 12th called Blind Cinema. In a cinema space, the audience sits blindfolded. A child seated behind describes, in hushed and fragile tones, a film that only they will see, and only this once. The idea is to change how they experience storytelling and cinema. Your child will be supervised by teachers and parents the whole time they are volunteering.
The time commitment needed from your child is participation in one performance on either January 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th from 4pm – 7pm (the actual performance is at 5:30pm for 45 minutes) at the SVA Theatre on 23rd Street in Chelsea. ALSO, that they attend a workshop with the artist that PS122 is hosting on Saturday, January 7th from 12pm – 2pm (location TBD, but downtown).
