Special Report - Feb 4, 2013: The staff of Performance Space 122 have taken to calling their home, at 150 First Avenue, "P.S. 122: East Village." In part, the nickname is practical: It differentiates the not-for-profit performing arts organization's main stages, which officially closed for lengthy renovations on February 1, from its new offices in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and from the venues throughout the boroughs where P.S. 122 is now producing shows. But it also indicates something larger: a shift in the organization's identity, from that of a brick-and-mortar theater to something less tactile. The three years during which the organization is homeless (or, really, theater-less) will largely determine what that something it is.
