FIFTH WALL FEST recreates the physical structures dedicated to culture and the arts with its own BLACK BOX. A venue for staging our events, talks, and workshops, it transcends the four walls of the performance space — fostering connections and exchange with individuals engaged in our celebration of dance on camera.
