A visiting performance artist once sent a note to DiverseWorks saying, "Once you've done DiverseWorks, you've done Texas." That's a mighty strong statement, but we agree that everyone should "do" DiverseWorks, located in Midtown. Now more than 30 years old, the funky, intimate performance space has brought consistently challenging and groundbreaking contemporary works to Houston. Homegrown shows like the experimental electronic music festival "Twelve Minutes Max" take shape here each season. But DiverseWorks also has introduced Houstonians to internationally recognized performance artists such as Miranda July and spoken-word celeb Marc Bamuthi Joseph.
