Open since October of 2015, MATCH was born of a desire to serve the broad spectrum of Houston's cultural arts organizations by providing a place where small to mid-sized cultural groups and individual artists could work in state-of-the-art facilities just like their more prominent and well-funded colleagues. With annual support from Houston First, MATCH is able to provide performance space, rehearsal space, exhibition and office space at rates nearly any artist or group can afford. 


And there are a variety of spaces to choose from. Matchbox 1 is a small black box with a seating capacity of 90 that can also serve as a small gallery. Temporary risers and chairs can be configured as endstage, thrust or in the round. Matchbox 2 is the dance space with a permanent dance floor and seating for 159. Matchbox 3 is a large black box with a seating capacity of 175 that can also be configured in a variety of ways. Matchbox 4 is a more conventional proscenium space with fixed seating for 323. All four Matchboxes are served by a central Breezeway that runs from the Box Office and Cafe on Main Street to the Bus drop-off on Travis Street and acts as the lobby for all 4.

Across the Breezeway from Matchbox 4 is a 3000 square foot gallery. Adjacent to the Gallery in the South Building is a 60 foot wide rehearsal hall that can be used as one room or divided into thirds. Above the Gallery and the Rehearsal Hall are offices and cubicles that are available for rent to artists and arts groups.

The Interchange, Houston’s newest space for dance, theater, art, music, flow, and circus art performance. Led by a collective of local Houston performance artists, The Interchange offers a unique opportunity for Houston’s art community to develop a space from the ground up.

Currently The Interchange is an empty 5,000 square foot warehouse in Midtown that is waiting to be developed into a performance space meeting the needs of independent artists and small dance and theater companies. The space is an empty shell that will be built out according to the needs of the collective and the community. It features performance space both indoors and out, which creates a lot of potential for unconventional artists to produce site specific work and use mediums like fire that are difficult to produce within the typical theater setting. There is also available onsite and street parking that is free of charge and easy to access.

Husband and wife team Maggie Lasher and Andy Karavitis are heading up the managerial side of the space, and are supported by the Interchange Collective, a group of multidisciplinary local artists who have a vested interest in developing the warehouse into an accessible and affordable space in which to present work. Maggie has been producing dance and fire performance with her company Holding Space for over a decade, and she is also the dance program coordinator at Houston Community College. Andy has served in theater production for many years, and he has played an important role in the production of fire shows.

Currently the collective has ten members (including Lasher and Karavitis) coming from a variety of artistic backgrounds. The inaugural collective features independent dance artists and teachers Ashley Horn Nott, Heather vonReichbauer, Jhon Stronks, and Lori Yuill, independent multidisciplinary artist Y.E. Torres, musician, teacher, and multidisciplinary artist William vonReichbauer, and circus/performance artists and entertainment producers Pasha Luminus and Anna Vlada of Silver Lynx Arts.

Says Lasher, “As both our city and performing art scene continue to grow and thrive, there is an ever-increasing need for affordable performance spaces in Houston. This need is particularly apparent for individuals and small-to-midsize companies presenting dance, theater, and movement arts. The Interchange is unique in that it is a chance for Houston artists to have a say in how the space develops, and allow the space to become a quality venue that supports the work of independent artists and small theater and dance companies. I also want to see a space that welcomes and supports multidisciplinary acts, and the growing flow and circus arts communities.”
