VENUES

All of the venues are located within “The Clemente” Cultural Center. Located at 107 Suffolk Street, Lower East Side, NY 10002.  

The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center Inc. (The Clemente) is a Puerto Rican/Latino cultural institution that has demonstrated a broad-minded cultural vision and a collaborative philosophy.  The Dutch Neo-Gothic building is a former public school (PS 160) constructed in 1898 by the Board of Education of the City of New York. By the mid-seventies the building had ceased to serve as a public school. 

There are four Puppet Fringe venues: 3 indoor Theaters and 1 Outdoor Theater. Other alternative spaces could be made available (Art Galleries, Studios, etc.). A venue will be assigned depending on your production needs.
