Studio 320, home to Theatre Incarnate, is located in the adjoining Telegram and Sures Buildings, at the corner of Albert Street and McDermot. Residing in the heart of Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, the 1000 square foot STUDIO 320 space serves many functions for our company. In addition to being a continuing rehearsal space for practice, study, and education through private and community workshops, STUDIO 320 provides performance opportunities as an intimate “black-box” theatre. Capable of seating an audience of up to 70, the studio is reconfigurable for many different styles of presentation, providing a unique theatrical experience for our patrons.
The Telegram Building is designed in the Victoria Romanesque Style and was originally built in 1882 for the R.J. Whitla Company and their dry goods wholesale business. It was one of the first large buildings in this former residential district and in 1889 was taken over by The Telegram Printing Company and used to print both the daily and weekly Winnipeg Telegram newspaper. This was the largest newspaper office west of Toronto at the time. The Telegram merged with the Tribune in 1920. Over the years the building has been home to various shops, offices, and artist loft spaces.
