It’s time for some old-school performance art. Tim Miller, who co-founded Performance Space 122 in 1980, returns to his old stomping ground in Lay of the Land, a solo monologue that takes a look at gay issues in the United States. He has toured the piece around the country, but tomorrow’s performance is all about the East Village: Post-show, he moderates a discussion about the transformation of the neighborhood’s queer spaces over the past three decades. Miller is one of the “NEA Four,” a group of artists who had their grants denied by the National Endowment for the Arts in 1990 because their work was just too hot to handle. Interesting side note: Another of the four, Holly Hughes, opens her own show tonight at Dixon Place: Let them Eat Cake, about a gay marriage gone wrong.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 1. Continues through Dec. 11, 2010
