The producers of the HFF16 immersive hit, Love the Body Positive, are back with the full length comedy, “Disrobed: Why so clothes-minded?” The play has been adapted and updated by Steven Vlasak (HFF18’s Nights at The Algonquin Roundtable) from the British naturist classic, “Barely Proper” by Tom Cushing. It’s Meet The Parents with a twist! Skye is about to introduce her conservative boyfriend to her family. But she’s never told him that she and her family are all nudists! Will their relationship survive? Once again, this immersive theatre experience requires the audience to be in their birthday suits, but house rules require footwear. Don’t forget to bring a clothes bag and a towel to sit on! All photography is prohibited and all cellphones must be turned off and stored in the clothes bag upon entering the venue.

In this immersive, intimate virtual reality theatre experience, audiences peer inside the memories of a recently broken-up couple and attempt to figure out “what went wrong” with their relationship. But nothing is ever quite as easy as it seems, especially when the human mind and heart are involved…
Welcome to Closure Inc., a brand new start-up with an age-old goal: Helping failed couples figure out where their relationship fell apart.
Using high-tech headsets, Closure Inc. employees can “view” the memories of both parties and then create an objectively analytical report of what went wrong. A lack of intimacy? Neediness? Failure to communicate? All of our client’s most crushing personal flaws will be on display, but at the end of the day they will rest easy knowing what exactly tore apart their love.

Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin is a multi-sensory, immersive, site-specific experience refracting ancient Japanese ghost stories through a modern, multi-cultural lens, revealing the noise of our histories and the silences that haunt us. A small group of twelve enters a room alone, the walls begins to thin, and a dark spirit stirs within you – will you ever escape it? Taken from the website.
