Chaos Theory

Chaos has taken on a whole new meaning in the last few weeks. We live this chaos every day, but what would happen if we played through this chaos rather than letting it play us? 

Join fictional scientist Dr. Genevieve Saoch, whose personal life continuously interferes with her objectivity as a Chaologist, in a super serious exploration of Chaos Theory explodes into a series of interactive games and experiments inspired by the science of chaos theory, Jurassic Park, middle school crushes, and, of course, the butterfly effect to end all butterfly effects: COVID-19.  

What have you got to lose (but the illusion of order in your life)?

How will this work?

After reserving a ticket, you'll receive a separate email before the show with the Zoom link. The interactive show will be hosted as a private event by Caveat. Thanks in advance for not sharing the Zoom link.


Going crazy yet? Craving information, but starting to feel desperate to receive it in a non-depressing way? Worried about the state of art and intelligent discussion in the time of social distancing? We got you.

Beginning this week, your favorite nerdy basement bar will host livestreams 5 nights a week with extra-special online editions of our shows. Medical advice without any bullsh*t! Wrestlemania-style debates over different scientific principles (where you can chime in)! Political science with that ever-needed dash of showmanship! If it’s smart and it’s weird and it’s entertaining, you know we’re gonna give it to you.

It’s a weird time and it may only get weirder. Hopefully some good old fashioned intelligent nightlife can help get you through it - right from the safety of your home.

And if you’d like to contribute to the artists and keeping the venue alive, here’s a link where you can do that! We’ll split whatever comes in between making sure Caveat stays functioning and the artists on stage.

Wash your hands and keep calm: Caveat is here to keep our community comforted and our creators working.
