THREE SHOWS ADDED. MUST CLOSE JUNE 1. Hello. Thank you for joining us. Please, take a name tag, sign into our guest book. We're so glad you're here. Tonight's going to be the first day of the rest of your life. We brought Zebra Cakes. From the minds of Jasmine Henri Jordan & Audrey Polinski, the Neo-Futurists present CULT SHOW, an exploration of one of society's most controversial phenomenona. We welcome you into the world of HEX-L, inviting you in to inhabit and wear our cultlike long linen robes, and in the same breath, stepping out to examine them with a magnifying glass, a curiosity asking ourselves why we are (or aren't) drawn to them in the first place. Whether you're a skeptic or a believer, all are welcome to step into our world of community, conforming, longing, and the spiritual plane (whatever that may be).
