Most underground spaces get only one shot–but the House of Yes–an innovative, ambitious, aerial performance venue–has gotten three, weathering serious odds for each incarnation to be bigger and brighter than the last…

The new House of Yes is a home for aerial dinner theatre, cabaret, dance parties, film screenings, fashion shows, experimental performances, and any other fascinating thing that comes along. “DIY spaes are a reflection of the people who create them,” [co-founder Anya Sapozhnikova] says. “This is us as artists: we build the shell of these spaces around us, and then we grow.”
