Rhythm Industry Performance Factory
1013 S. Tyndall Ave.
Tucson, AZ 85719
RiPFactory opened in 2007 to provide much needed teaching, generative, and rehearsal space for Tucson community performing groups. Although Odaiko Sonora handles the bulk of administrative and financial duties, the space operates as a collective. All of the groups pitch in to keep the place open, whether that means fixing the coolers, rigging lights, cleaning the bathrooms, or buying water filters. And all of the groups enjoy perks for those investments of time and energy, hanging lights or bringing in other event tech, or having premium access to the 1,500 sq ft dance floor.
