3-Legged Dog Media + Theater Group opened the doors of our 3LD Art & Technology Center to the public in March 2006 and since then we have been producing new experimental work and bringing new audiences to Lower Manhattan.
Designed by architect Thomas Leeser, the facility is a critically acclaimed 12,500 square foot flexible space notable for its striking curved and deep, white, tubular central hallway. It is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and efficiency tools for the production of large-scale, experimental artwork and the development of new technologies.
The maximum capacity for our entire space is just under 1000 people. 3LD Art & Tech as it is affectionately called, has a variety of uses, but all are Arts-Related and resonate with our Mission. We host a variety of events and activities including: Press events, Classes, Workshops, Immersive Performances, Interactive Installations, Concerts, Technology Labs, & Launch Parties.

Let's clear this up:
The production company, 3-Legged Dog Media + theater group, operates 3ld art & technology center, the 1000 person capacity art space, performance venue and integrative technology lab.
3-Legged Dog is a community-oriented and artist-run production development studio for emerging and established artists and organizations that create large-scale experimental artworks of all kinds. From our home 3LD Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan, 3LD has built an unrivaled talent magnet, drawing artists from around the globe to New York to create large-scale, immersive and technology-driven projects in New York City. Since opening in 2006, we have hosted thousands of artists through our 3LD Residency Program, offering a unique experience with 24/7 access to specialized equipment, flexible space and expert knowledge, as well as the desperately needed time to fully realize their visions.
About that name? It was inspired by a pit bull, Sid, who would perch on a loading dock outside an arts space Mr. Cunningham once ran in Houston, and jump down to chase passing cars. The dog was not only undaunted when he lost a front leg playing this dangerous game; he actually got better at it.
“The fourth leg wasn’t in the way, so he actually could occasionally get a chomp on the sidewall,” Mr. Cunningham said. “He became a symbol of for the requirements of artistic life in the U.S. : persistence of vision in the face of adversity.”The NYT
Five years after the destruction of our headquarters at 30 West Broadway on September 11th, 2001, 3-Legged Dog Media + Theater Group was thrilled to open our new home, the 3LD Art & Technology Center located at 80 Greenwich Street in Lower Manhattan, just 3 blocks south of the WTC site.
3-Legged Dog is the first producing arts group to sign a lease in the Liberty Zone and the first to rebuild downtown. A cultural anchor for the Greenwich Street Corridor, 3LD Art & Technology Center has been called a “quintessentially ‘hip location,’ a magnet in a still rough-around-the-edges neighborhood,” by Newsday and The New York Times said after 3LD opened, “A theater group offers hope at Ground Zero.”
3-Legged Dog Media + Theater Group operates 3LD Art & Technology Center and with the help of a distinguished international network of artists and curators we curate the 3LD Cooperative Professional Resources Program, which includes long term production residencies. Since 2006, 3-Legged Dog has provided subsidies to 3LD’s residents through traditional fundraising and through a progressive license fee structure in which more established better funded companies pay more to help support newer less well funded companies and independent artists. We create and support challenging large- scale, well-produced art focusing on artists and companies on the verge of artistic or organizational breakthrough. In our own work, we push scale, cooperation and community building with other artists as the most viable course to survival and growth. Our work has been seen in such venues as the Kitchen, La Mama, The Ontological-Hysteric Theater, PS 122, The Venice Biennale, The Signature Theatre Co. and at our new home, 3LD Art & Technology Center. Since 1994, we have become a mainstay in the experimental arts community and have been performing downtown ever since.
