Anchor Partners

The Anchor Partners program is for small or emerging companies looking to up their game. Far more than a four-walls rental, Anchor Partners receive subsidized rental rates, consistent access to one or more of our spaces, and the support of our entire in-house tech, marketing and producing team. The program can accommodate up to seven companies each year and welcomes applications from theater, music and dance groups.

Just a decade ago New York City boasted over 100 viable spaces for small companies to produce their work – now there are less than 25. Anchor Partners is our response. Our three new theaters were built to be shared, and The Flea seeks to anchor companies stretching to the next level, without a home of their own.

Please email the Artistic Director, Niegel Smith at to request an application.
