BRIC House is located at 647 Fulton Street (at Rockwell Place).

The project repurposed the former Strand Theater building in the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District. Our neighbors include BAM Harvey, Mark Morris Dance Center, and Theatre for a New Audience (at the Polonsky Shakespeare Center), among many other cultural organizations that call the district home.

BRIC House features a flexible Performance Space known as the BRIC House Ballroom, equipped with a sprung floor for dance and flexible seating to accommodate a wide variety of configurations and performance styles. An entirely new professional resource for the performing arts in Brooklyn, the Ballroom also features dressing rooms, a green room for artists and state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment –supporting high-quality production values.
