The von der Heyden Studio Theater
The von der Heyden Studio Theater supports a wide variety of performances unlike any other venue on Duke’s campus. With a moveable seat platform, a huge projection screen, and windows that can let in natural light or be blacked out, it can be configured in many ways.
