In-House Action

It’s all happening at Mencius Studio, and it’s all about learning and connecting. Mencius Studio is a 800 square feet open space fully fitted with its own stage and kitchenette. This is where EastRiver normally practices for a tour and this is where we teach kids to roll and tumble and let the elders write calligraphy or sound out a forgotten song. At the Chinese New Year, we sometimes drum up a noisy party. During down times, others are welcome to use this space - mindfully and productively - just as we do!
