World Premiere


January 7*, 8, 12-15 at 7:30pm | January 9, 16 at 2pm at HERE Mainstage | 100 minutes


Join us and your fellow proto super-fans for the world premiere opening night of this colorful celebration of togetherness. Tickets for the opening night of The Hang on January 7th at 7:30 pm range from $75-$150.

The Hang is a ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of a moment.  Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of the life of Socrates, as he asks his friends to use every moment left to think on virtue. What transpires is a centuries-long communal consideration, full of jazz, dance, debates, and queer romps.

Join us January 14 after the 7:30pm performance for an artist conversation.

Commissioned, developed and produced by HERE
