The black box theatre supports all performing arts programming on the site. The tilted cube rises on the SE corner to mark the entry to the building. A corridor brings visitors into a large, flexible open space for rehearsals and performances. Support spaces (such as washrooms, coat rooms, and sound booths) are nested to the rear of the theatre. Above the space sits a rigging grid for lighting, sound and other suspended equipment.

To the north, an oversized portal opens up to a covered outdoor stage. Performances can be arranged to suit indoor or outdoor audiences. A large freight elevator allows for props, equipment and people to move between floors of the theatre.
