After a recent refurbishment, this downtown stalwart is now one of the most comfortable experimental spaces, what with its cozy lobby café (1 Dominick) and relatively impressive multimedia capacity. The upstairs space—long, wide and low—has played host to recent smashes like Taylor Mac’s epic The Lily’s Revenge, while the downstairs 70-seat black box sees new works by everyone from Karinne Keithley to Tina Satter. HERE’s strength lies in its come-one-come-all attitude, its absurdly generous grant and commissioning programs, and a genuine warmth that is largely thanks to the venue’s doyenne and founder, Kristin Marting, and the community of artists who call HERE a second home.
What's on at HERE
Seventeen emerging playwrights convene at HERE for the 12th edition of this multicultural festival.
Five characters attempt to find silver linings amid the dust cloud of a besieged Middle Eastern city in a drama by Algerian-French playwright Mohamed Kacimi, directed by Tracy Cameron Francis for 3rd Kulture kids.
Created by HERE resident artists Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty, this multimedia- and live-performance production—performed by Madeline Best and Carlton Ward—features choreography by Tara O'Con and music by Brian Rogers.
