HERE builds a community that nurtures career artists as they create innovative hybrid live performance in theatre, dance, music, puppetry, media and visual art. Our artist residencies support the singular vision of the lead artist through commissions, long-term development, and production support. HERE’s programs and performances promote relationships among local, national, and international artists. Our space is a destination for audiences who are passionate about ground-breaking contemporary work and the creative process behind it.

Since 1993, HERE has been one of New York’s most prolific producing and presenting organizations, and today, it stands at the forefront of the city’s presenters of daring new hybrid art. Opera-theatre and music-theatre have long been part of HERE's programming. In January 2013, HERE launched PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now, an annual festival of contemporary opera-theatre and music-theatre co-produced by Beth Morrison Projects and HERE that showcases an exciting new generation of composers and their collaborators. PROTOTYPE engages local, national, and international audiences that share a commitment to adventurous contemporary work. Inaugurated with critical success and popular acclaim, each PROTOTYPE festival includes one world premiere, two full-scale presentations (one by a New York or national artist, and one by an international artist), a multi-media concert, a concert reading of a work in development, and two panel discussions that engage the public in the topic of the development of opera.
