Very affordable space rental opportunity for live arts

Hello Theatre Artists, Fringers and Performance makers,

Fight With a Stick wanted to share with you a fabulous rental opportunity available immediately in Chinatown. See the message below from our friends at Left of Main:

Hello live art makers! We are a collective of three dance organizations: plastic orchid factory, MACHiNENOiSY and Tara Cheyenne Performance and the founders of Left of Main, a new 1,500 sq. ft. artist-run space at 544 Main St, on the north east corner of Main and Keefer St.

While we wait for construction permits so we can outfit the space to suit our needs we have decided to make the space available for any theatre artists or performing artists who do not require a dance floor but just a beautifully “empty space”.

Left of Main is a creative oasis conveniently located amongst the artists and entrepreneurs of Strathcona/Chinatown. The working area is approx. 1,000 sq.ft. large (see photos below). Close to the Playwrights Theatre Centre and many artist run centers such as Unit Pitt and Centre A. With Hons across the street and Matchstick coffee only a block away, your bathroom breaks could be more than just relieving, you will feel yourself a part of the city’s vibrant pulse!

As artists we understand the stress of producing on a shoestring budget so we are currently renting Left of Main at a reduced “pre-reno deal” rate of $10 an hour. For bookings contact:
