The Fishtank Performance Studio


A space to collaborate, edit, and debut ideas, the Fishtank Performance Studio develops new works from concept to concert by providing a low-risk, low-cost environment that inspires theatrical entrepreneurship. Material performed at the Fishtank is fresh, its content progressive, and its writers and performers committed to the risk taking and the possibility of failure. Producing and presenting raw material keeps its intimate black-box theater and outside storefront window for live performances or art installations activated and prepares local audiences for international artwork.
