Nomadicube is a project by Marianne Bernstein. A 10’ cube becomes a roving satellite, living room, radio station, studio, performance space, movie theatre; collecting stories and bringing people together in surprising new ways. The geometry of the cube frames space into a creative free zone; the practice inside is unpredictable, allowing for spontaneous and intimate interactions, often around social justice issues.

Past cubes include: The Welcome House, Love Park (2010) and Not a Vacant Lot, Philadelphia, PA (2011); Beyond What Was in New Haven, CT (2012); in Skagastrond, a small fishing village in Northern Iceland (2014); and most recently, The Cube in Chicago, (2019) : HERE (Pilsen), SOVEREIGN (Bridgeport), and RUMOR (Chatham).
