VIOLETTE, a show for single audience members, combines theatre and virtual reality providing an innovative and intimate experience.
This spring, Violette welcomes you to her place. She lets you enter the privacy of her room, and then, of her imagination. Only you. Step into her place as into a the home of a friend; put on your VR headset, see a universe of snow and forests materialize in front of your eyes; and become the sole witness to Violette’s untold story, both magical and tragic. Finally, take your headset off and return to “real life”. You may never look at this world – the one you share with Violette and the rest of us – quite the same way again.
Led and presented by an entirely female and inclusive team, three of whom are actors with an intellectual disability, this new creation breaks down barriers while addressing a reality experienced by too many intellectually disabled women: between 70 and 90% of them will be victims of sexual abuse during their lives.
The work is in both English and French and has a duration of 25 minutes.
May 12 > 30 2021
Accessible for people with reduced mobility and wheelchair users. Please note that there are no ASL/LSQ interpretations, audio descriptions or relaxed performances available for this show.
The headsets and headphones used during the experience are sterilized after each participant using a Cleanbox, an independently lab tested device that employs UVC light to eliminate coronavirus.
