2020 Highlights So Far!

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Hello Venice Islanders!

A lot has been going on since the new year started and we just wanted to fill you in on some of the exciting things that have happened at our space. Obviously we can't mention everything (we're very busy!), but these are just a few highlights.

2020 marks a big year for us as we start dabbling into the world of curating our own events on a regular basis. We kicked off the new decade by bringing ComedySportz to our space, and it was nothing short of a hilariously fun night and made us even more excited of things to come.

The next couple of big things we had come through our space were weeklong productions from Dice Raw and his company New Raw Media in early January and February with The King of Love and Henry Box Brown.

We also partnered up with MNYK Studios to produce a night of local music! Featuring Adventure Lost, Jesse Gimbel, and Bazmati Vice, it was an incredible night of incredible music, and the start of something special here at Venice Island. In fact, we are hosting our next night of local music on April 2nd!

Finally, we had the swan song performances of The Slave Narratives from Grounded Theatre Company and it was as empowering as it ever was.

Stay tuned for more updates of even more amazing things we have coming up very, very soon!
