House of Yes in 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
Dear House of Yes patrons, party goers, performers, students and friends,The above message was posted by the people at Brooklyn performance space/arts venue House of Yes, which has hosted the Mister Saturday Night parties, Lady Circus, and more. They've got a couple more events left at the current space, and then will be looking for a new Brooklyn location.
Five years ago, we signed a lease on decrepit building in the depths of East Williamsburg, and turned it into a castle of creative forces, an incubator for ideas and for many... a place to call home.
This week, we learned that we were unable to renew our lease at 342 Maujer Street. While we were initially shocked and saddened by this news, we have now come to realize that this is the perfect opportunity to take things to the next level.
We are looking to create North Brooklyn's first proper theater, a versatile event venue and an aerial training facility. We will be a more polished, professional, and larger House of Yes.
5 years ago we embarked on this project with extremely limited resources and know how. Now we head into the future with incredible potential. We stand ready and eager, backed by a community of thousands, with a whole lot of experience under our belts.
These past five years in this space has generated more joy than some see in an entire lifetime. We are forever grateful for every second anyone has ever spent at House of Yes- Every audience member. Every party goer. Every performer. Every aerialist. Every person reading this. Every person who made the House of Yes a thriving hive of art, energy, performance and family.
The House of Yes was never a building- it was always a community of creatives, fueled by a desire to work, make and share their gifts with New York City and the world.
the House of Yes Crew.
