CounterPulse Theater

This theater provides creative performance space and resources for emerging artists and the surrounding community. Housed within a former pornography theater, CounterPulse moved to this rapidly changing neighborhood, to deepen its investment in Central Market and expand partnerships with social service and justice organizations in the Tenderloin. The full-building renovation includes a new 115-seat theater with reconfigurable seating platforms, theatrical and production lighting-grid and trapeze rigging, A/V control room, rentable rehearsal space, administration offices and back-of-house support & utility spaces. The entrance lobby ushers visitors into the performance space by welcoming them to proceed deeper under the stepped ceiling, formed by the structure of theater seats above.
