Friends: The Chocolate Factory Theater is fully committed to the health and safety of its artists, staff, audience and the community at large. To that end, we have made the sad but necessary decision to postpone our upcoming performances by Guadalupe Maravilla (in partnership with Knockdown Center), Stephanie Acosta, Ingri Fiksdal, Jess Pretty, Antonio Ramos (in partnership with Abrons Arts Center) and Donna Uchizono (in partnership with Baryshnikov Arts Center. Because the economic stability of The Chocolate Factory's artist community is of utmost importance to us, we will honor all financial commitments to lead artists, performers, technical and administrative staff.
For years, this small but vital space for experimental dance and theater, in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, has been building an under-the-radar Vimeo archive of all that happens there (or most of it). Browse dozens of performances from the past decade — along with helpful “context videos” in which the artists talk about their work — at vimeo.com/chocolatefactory.

While The Chocolate Factory Theater remains closed to the public, our primary task is to support the work and livelihoods of our community as this (constantly shifting) reality unfolds. At this very critical juncture, we think it's important to remind ourselves that small local businesses are the life blood of this city.
