HERE Inventory

HERE has an extensive list of high-tech equipment available; however, much of the equipment has to be shared between both theatres. Please keep in mind that just because an item is on the list, it does not mean that the item is available. We operate on a first come-first served basis. Much of our equipment is freely available upon request, howeversome equipment, due to the high purchase or maintenance cost, has an additional rental cost. Items with an additional cost will be indicated as such on the equipment inventory. Any additional questions concerning our inventory can be send to markus@here.org.

Exhibition Space

HERE’s exhibition space is an entryway to the theatres within our facility, resulting in a diverse and eclectic audience. HEREart embraces its alter ego as a lobby for HERE’s performance spaces and encourages artists to react and respond to this with their exhibits. Many visitors to our galleries are unintentional – they happen upon it on the way to a performance or the café. HEREart seeks to snag these passers-by and engage them in a dialogue with the space in which we move. HEREart is invested in supporting artworks of all media and various content, but we concentrate on new work that in some way addresses the special conditions of our space.

The HERE Café

HERElounge

Our cozy lounge is perfect for meeting before or hanging out after a show. It is open one hour before curtain for all performances and food and drink are permitted in both theatres. The space can accommodate up to 50 patrons for readings, symposiums, conferences, receptions, parties, weddings or pure leisure. Available daily and hourly for special events.
