The Black Box Theater Project

An outstanding new learning environment made possible by the Advancement program.

About the Project

A Black Box Theater is a flexible performance space that can suit a wide range of theatrical and performance productions. 

With superior acoustic isolation and treatment, lighting grids, and flexible seating, this space is perfect to hold a variety of productions, art exhibitions, conferences, classes and events.

This outstanding learning space will change everything for our performing arts program.

"I see the black box as a creative lab for learning new perspectives of the outer and inner self. It is a 'box of surprises' promoting rewarding experiences for personal growth."

Extraordinary performance space &
audience experience

Listen everything with clarity

A space with acoustic isolation, treatment and sound systems, will support students' performances. They share their voices, and we hear them with great clarity.

See your child presenting

Seating with different levels and proper lighting, allows the audience to see everything that is happening in a performance.

A dynamic space for creativity flow

This is a flexible space that allows different ways to perform, broadening students' creativity and providing them unique learning experiences.

Why the Wildcat Arena?

The Black Box Theater will be located inside the Wildcat Arena Lobby. The high ceiling structure was the perfect place to accommodate this design. This existing structure was considered in the viability study of this project as it allowed our donations to be allocated mainly in accomplishing the acoustic, lighting and seating goals of this project. 

By implementing a superior performing space next to the Flow Art Gallery, we are consolidating the arts at ISC.

Where we are now

The Advancement program has achieved the funding goal for the Black Box Theater! Its implementation started in December 2023, and has an estimated construction period of six months.

Designing this project was an incredible process involving teachers, architects, engineers and various experts. We visited Black Box Theaters in Curitiba, and connected with other schools around the world to learn from their experiences using this type of spaces. Everything done with passion and support from the school Leadership and the ISC Board.

It is this way of thinking that enables us to solve complex problems, innovate and to feel confident when expressing ideas.
