A new home for experimentation in NYC

Spaces for artists to take creative risks are an endangered breed.
We are opening a new one.

What is The Collapsable Hole?

The Collapsable Hole is a cavernous performance space in the basement of Westbeth Arts in New York City’s West Village. It is run by a group of eight artists and artist-run organizations. Originally founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2000 by Collapsable Giraffe and Radiohole in what was a run down garage, the first Hole was a home for "an approximate inventory of New York's most innovative artists” (Village Voice) and had a run of 13 years. After a few years in the wilderness, the Hole has been resurrected in new form but with its irrepressibly unruly ethos intact.

David Commander & Rob Ramirez | Steve of Tomorrow

March 16 - April 1

Steve of Tomorrow is a new technology-infused puppet performance created by toy theater artist David Commander in collaboration with media artist Rob Ramirez and co-produced by Immediate Medium. In Steve of Tomorrow, Commander turns his satirical gaze to our tech-obsessed present to explore whether technology is leading us on a path to a utopian future, or if our gadgetry and media have caught us in a destructive loop of self-obsession.
