The Hemispheric Institute has developed two centers, one in New York City and one in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico, which provide programming, access to research materials, and performance and workshop spaces, for members of the Hemispheric Institute. 

Hemispheric New York

Hemispheric New York features special programs, such as EMERGENYC (, lectures, film series, conferences, and performance workshops, some of which are exclusively for members, and some which are open to the public at large. We also have a reference library that houses rare books, journals, video viewing stations, and performance ephemera.

Centro Hemisférico in FOMMA

Centro Hemisférico in FOMMA is a performance and research space developed in conjunction with Fortaleza de la Mujer Maya (FOMMA), a Mayan women's theater collective based in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico. Featuring a state–of–the–art digital studio and a fully outfitted theater space, the center's mission is to promote, showcase and archive local performance practices and develop research, artistic creation and cultural programming with and for local, national and international communities. Centro Hemisférico provides space for institutional members to host work group meetings, performance workshops, and academic courses.
