Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts
Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Frank Gehry, the 110,000-square-foot Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College houses two theaters; four rehearsal studios for dance and theater; and professional support facilities for costume and scenic construction.
The infinitely flexible Theater Two
features programming by Bard’s Dance and Theater Programs during the academic year. In the summer months, the Fisher Center is home to Bard SummerScape
, a festival of opera, theater, and dance, and the Bard Music Festival
The Felicitas S. Thorne Dance Studio is a soaring, light-filled space in which students take class and rehearse. It is also the home of the weekly Dance Workshop, where choreographers share works-in-progress with faculty and other students. Theatrical lighting and sound systems make Thorne a versatile labratory for student choreographers.
