ABOUT

In every rite of passage, there is a phase where one is not who they once were and not yet who they will become. Like the seeker on pilgrimage or a caterpillar inside its chrysalis, there exist states of uncertainty, chaos, and metamorphosis. These are states of liminality.

Liminal states operate under different rules. Time and space change their ways. Control surrenders to awareness. Acceptance becomes a form of agency. And those who let go are transformed.

Liminality is an anthology of immersive stories that transports you into the depths of the liminal realm. The show unfolds around you like a dream, alternating between award-winning Virtual Reality pieces and original soundscapes played through New York City's only permanent Ambisonic sound system. Combining MoFE's surreal storytelling with mind bending technology, MoFE's Liminality invites you to enter the dark unknown in the pursuit of a brighter future.

This is a seated audiovisual experience. Parts of the show require the use of a VR headset. The show runs 75 minutes with no intermission. Suggested age: 16+. In accordance with the NYC mandate, proof of vaccination is required for entry. Please arrive 15 minutes before showtime. Shows begin promptly at the start time. There is no late admittance.
