About the Venue

The non-Western performance space houses the instruments of the Javanese Gamelan orchestra. In addition to Javanese Gamelan and dance performances, the World Music Hall is a popular space for dance and music performances as well as readings.

The audience sits on carpeted tiers or floor; no installed seats exist in the hall. Seating area rises in 18" increments above floor.

Exits are located on north east and south east side of ground floor level,  and north and south of lower basement level.
