The Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center (WPAC) is the home to the Theatre Department at Florida International University. Located on FIU’s Modesto Maidique Campus (MMC), students have the opportunity to learn hands on through productions performed at the Theater Mainstage and Black Box Theater.

A SkyDeck™ tension wire grid (TWG) system was installed in FIU’s 200 seat Black Box Theatre in 2004, further improving the flexibility inherent in a black box space. The 2,340 square foot grid is a wall-to-wall installation, allowing complete access to all overhead equipment anywhere in the space.
