MISSION

We conjure urgent, unashamed art to create action in a shifting age. We embrace diverse communities, break down barriers, and elevate inclusive discourse from our home in Austin, Texas. We enliven humanity with a magical green new theatre at our Butterfly Bar and Sanctuary.

HISTORY

Widely-recognized as the pioneering leader in Austin’s alternative theatre scene, The VORTEX has produced over 300 productions, including more than 100 world premieres. Artistic work includes operas, musicals, plays, ritual theatre, experimental collaborative, and devised projects.  The VORTEX venue is artist-owned and operated and was the first theatre to make a home for the arts in 1994 in Austin’s historically-underserved Eastside, now a blossoming arts district. A key player in the Austin New Works Community and one of Austin’s major theatrical forces, The VORTEX has received more than 100 major local awards and hundreds of nominations for artistic excellence. The VORTEX has always engaged in gender- and color-fluid,  non-traditional casting. The VORTEX has offered its free, award-winning Summer Youth Theatre since 1991. Internationally renowned as a haven for alternative performance, The VORTEX has presented work by dozens of famous cutting-edge artists. The VORTEX owns and operates The Butterfly Bar. With a liquor license, free WiFi, a huge Yard and deck, and regular nightly hours, The VORTEX thrives as a community destination and leader in the growth of arts and economic stability in Austin.
