Meta-Phys Ed.’s The Talmud is a genre-bending performance based on the Talmud and Kung-Fu films about the transmission of ancient traditions and sacred wisdom across generations; from teacher to student and master to disciple.

“The Exponential Festival is the only month-long January festival dedicated to New York City-based emerging artists working in experimental performance. The participants in this multi-artist, multi-venue festival are committed to ecstatic creativity in the face of commercialism. Exponential is driven by inclusiveness and a diversity of artists, forms, and ideas coupled with utopian resource-sharing, mentoring and the championing of risky, rigorous work in eclectic fields to keep theatre kicking.”
