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.”

Brasil Bar / Restaurant / Cafe / Event Venue 

Brasil opened in 1992 as the first specialty coffee establishment in Houston.  The intention was to provide a venue that embodied quality design, products, people, and interaction.  Houston has always been a diverse city, yet Brasil was the first establishment to welcome and encourage a connection between different groups.  The details of the interior, the landscape, the music, the artwork, the staff, and the menu were designed to create interaction in an atmosphere of casual sophistication.

Flatland Gallery 
Originally named Mixture, the gallery has served under iterations such as DOMY Books, The Brandon, and She Works Flexible. The previous Gallery "The Brandon" showcased local, national, and international emerging and professional artists to varied audiences.
