PS21 will open the summer with the Next Festival of Emerging Artists: World Premieres for String Orchestra, with guest electric guitarist Yvette Young.SEE EVENT
Choreographers and contemporary companies perform in an apple orchard on 80 acres in the foothills of the Berkshires. Caleb Teicher and Ephrat Asherie — internationally known artists come to Performance Space 21.
Founded 20 years ago, PS21 has grown into a series of music and theater, dance and film. For many years the concert stage opened in the summer season, under a tent, but in 2018 it expanded into the cold months in a new all-weather space.
A black-box theater now allows for flexible sound, lighting and space. In warm weather, the east wall opens to form a larger pavilion theater. In July and August, visiting artists perform new work and lead workshops and family actitities in a festival of film outdoors on the big screen and dance and music in many traditions — acoustic and classical, West African and jazz and more.
