The Studio at Chinatown Soup is an underground space where presenters, performers, and patrons participate in culturally engaging events and workshops--from poetry slams to recording sessions to theater troupe residencies--on a rotating basis. In addition, this space is available for artist workstations and special-request programming. Inspired by the Basement Workshop of 1970s Chinatown, an upstart, activist organization begun by a group of young urban planners and artists that grew from scavenging discarded street furniture and benefit dances to spawning the Museum of Chinese in America, Soup's basement is a laboratory for everything experimental and conscious.
We're located at 16 Orchard St, on the blurring border of Chinatown and the Lower East Side. We're surrounded by a diverse community of galleries, shops, restaurants and cafes, all in good company.
