Business Description

littlefield is a performance and art space in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood nestled between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. Housed in an old, 6200-square foot warehouse dating from the 1920s, littlefield merges the Gowanus’ industrial past with a sustainable future. These elements include a landscaped interior courtyard, sound walls formed from recycled rubber tires, a bar built from salvaged bowling alley lanes, and energy supplied by wind power. Future projects include a grey-water system and a landscaped roof that will reduce littlefield’s footprint to virtually zero while providing fresh ingredients for our menu. Coupled with an industrial/organic aesthetic is a state-of-the-art sound system designed for live music, art installations, and film screenings. The main system is based around the latest 3-way loudspeaker arrays by EAW, powered by QSC amplifiers, and digitally controlled via networked Rane processors. As an added acoustical and functional feature, a moveable partition was built to separate the performance space from the gallery/bar. When the partition is fully closed, the performance space can accommodate up to 300 people while the gallery/bar can hold up to 100. For larger performances, the partition can be moved to one side and littlefield can hold up to 400 people. This flexible design allows littlefield to book diverse programming, occupying various performance spaces either simultaneously or slightly staggered. littlefield has hosted a wide spectrum of programs including indie rock, hip-hop, dance, soul, jazz, experimental and reggae, as well as monthly art exhibits, literary events and film screenings.
