In 2016-17, Til Lalezar Theatre spent nine months in residency at 12 Federal Street in Greenfield, MA. Through a partnership between Til Lalezar and local restaurant and brewery The People’s Pint, 12federal blossomed into a Greenfield community space and performance studio. Beginning in 2017, on the twentieth anniversary of The People’s Pint, 12federal has presented a series of events ranging from Cabarets to Lectures, from Community Meetings to Workshops, and more!
Renovating 12federal 2016
From abandoned storefront to beautiful studio space! We spent three autumn months on scaffolding with scarlet ceiling paint dripping into our eyes, or down on our knees pulling nails out of baseboard. Blood, sweat, tears, and laughter. The birth of 12federal!
