porterspace is an initiative to provide emerging performance artists with a space to develop their work.

Access to studio space in New York City is the biggest barrier to creating new, refreshing, challenging, diverse art for all. But not here! It's free to come here to make work, and it's free to come here to see the work being made (we like that too).



Residencies are available for individual theater artists and theater companies to develop, devise and create new work in our rehearsal studio.



Our space sits up to 30 people. We will host and promote readings and presentations of new theatrical works looking for a future.


Our rehearsal space is available at below-market rent for rehearsal for smaller productions by emerging producers about to enter paid public performances.
