It's time for TDF's Performeteria,
our first-ever immersive theatre festival
What does that mean? Let me tell you!
Performeteria is a two-night event, co-presented with Baruch Performing Arts Center, that invites you to travel through multiple levels of theatres, nooks, and hidden spaces within the venue to discover unique, site-specific works from 15 Off-Off-Broadway theatre companies.
Or, to put it another way: We're taking over BPAC, and as you explore the building, you'll encounter an amazing theatre or dance company around every corner. Performances are only 10 minutes each, so you'll have time to see as many groups as you wish. Plus, there's a bar where you can relax, drink, and talk about what you've experienced.
Performeteria takes place on Monday, March 20 and Friday, March 24. Tickets
have a "timed entry," meaning your journey begins at 7, 7:45, 8:30, or 9:30pm. (No matter when you start, you can see as many performances as you like.)
All tickets are $9. That's right! Only $9 to see work from all these amazing groups! Get your tickets here
