Four years after gentrification forced them to relocate from their longtime space on Ludlow Street to Tribeca, Collective: Unconscious, a hotbed for experimental theater and art, will close for good. The funky little theater was adept at connecting broke performers with broke audiences and letting the sparks fly with minimal risk. The lease on the Tribeca space, where they moved in 2004, is up at the end of the month, and per their publicist, “a massive plumbing problem has rendered its lower level 'lobby' and backstage storage area unusable,” forcing most of the upcoming UNDERGROUNDZERO FESTIVAL to seek new venues. And in retrospect, Tribeca might not have been the best place to turn for affordable rent.
