7. Performing Garage
The Performing Garage is located in the Soho-Cast Iron District. The space is a former metal stamping facility turned theater and performance in 1968. The garage was initially home to the Performance Group, known for redesigning the space for every production. Most of the group’s works were radical reinterpretations of classics.
By 1980, the group had changed its name and leadership. The Wooster Group took its name from the street where the garage was located. Founding members of The Wooster Group include influential performance artist Spalding Gray and actor Willem Dafoe.
The Wooster Group is currently preparing for a tour of The Town Hall Affair. Check them out if you happen to be in Antwerp in September or Paris in October.
