Opening Saturday, October 22nd, from 4:20PM - 9:30PM

HOT MESS! Quarterly Series produced by Sara Zalek in partnership with Elastic Arts

In person and Live Streamed Hybrid Performance Events: Expect dance, poetry, talk show, music, free jazz, noise, video, glitch, interactive environments, theatrical moments, and the unexpected.

Hot Mess! is a play space where we invite the chaos of the unfamiliar into our process, together. We focus on the moments of co-creation, discover new ways of working together, interacting with the audience, connecting both in person and online. Hot Mess! demonstrates the power of working together in the unknown, seeks possibilities for Queering space, and centers the joy and beauty in re-starting while making art! All ages are invited.
