This one-time flatware factory was converted into a performance space in the late '70s, becoming the home for Richard Schechner's the Performance Group, which eventually morphed into the Wooster Group. Ever since, Elizabeth LeCompte's Woosters have made this 60-seat, bare-bones warehouse space their home, though it has become more of a rehearsal venue as their larger, finished shows move into spots like St. Ann's, the Public and the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Affiliated artists like Richard Maxwell and Elevator Repair Service have also made work here, exploiting the room's rich history, technical gadgetry and simple lines.
