AT THE ORANGE SHOW

Every last Friday of the month
6-10PM

What language is your art? Sound, movement, words, noise, poetry, puppetry, inventions, installations, shapes... Houston's most creative minds are highlighted each month during The Happening, with the Orange Show's sprawling campus as their stage.

 

Curated by artist Alexandra Lechin, no two Happenings are ever the same, and you never know what you'll experience!

Anyone interested in presenting a piece of work or engaging audiences in an activity is invited to submit a proposal to be part of an upcoming Happening. 

A monthly curated experimental performance art and open mic showcase
