Basic Flowers is Four Larks' DTLA hub and performance laboratory. It is an all-inclusive creative space, concert hall, and media studio hidden in the heart of downtown's historic core.
The site was previously home to a modestly monikered floral shop, flanked by historic murals on either side. Four Larks burrowed through the trash and trove of tenants past to construct the immersive installation for The Temptation of St Antony, which has housed all subsequent performances and residencies. The venue's secret location is revealed by invitation to our special events.
