Housed at New York University, Hemispheric New York offers year-round programming, including lectures, film series, conferences, exhibits, artist residencies, and EMERGENYC, a ten week training program in "artivist" performance for emerging artists (emergenyc.org). We also house a reference library of rare books, journals, video viewing stations, and performance ephemera.
Centro Hemisférico at FOMMA is a performance and research space developed in conjunction with Fortaleza de la Mujer Maya (FOMMA), a Mayan women's theater collective based in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico. Featuring a state-of-the-art digital studio and a fully outfitted theater space, the center's mission is to promote, showcase and archive local performance practices and develop research, artistic creation and cultural programming with and for local, national and international communities. Centro Hemisférico presents public performances, visual arts exhibits, workshops, film screenings, and other cultural activities. It also provides space for institutional members to host work group meetings, performance workshops, and academic courses.
