Events Description

 
Immerse yourself in the world of our characters for 50 breathtaking minutes, as you plug into this poetic and cathartic experience. An app created especially for this exciting new show will sweep you away with state-of- the-art 3D sound design as you use your smartphone and headphones to navigate the performance.
Walk the path with the performers and share their sensations and thoughts, as the action unfolds before your eyes. This ‘charming’ (Time Out), ‘gripping’ (The Guardian) and ‘magical’ (The Arts Desk) production pushes the boundaries of what live theatre can achieve, allowing us to redefine what ‘performance’ means to us, and ultimately encouraging us to fall in love with theatre all over again.

Designed specifically to ensure safety and follow public health guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, precautions include a maximum of 20 people at each performance, guided by staff to keep socially-distanced space as they follow the performers along the street. Everyone – including the actors – wears masks. Tickets will be easy to exchange if necessary, recognizing the evolving situation around pandemic restrictions.

C-O-N-T-A-C-T aims to safely revive the arts, support local businesses, and spotlight Canada’s cultural mosaic by offering the show in 9 different languages in 3D sound. Tap into the play’s soundscape through headphones and our mobile app as you follow the actors through the downtown streets of Toronto. C-O-N-T-A-C-T is entirely placed outdoors allowing for a unique and safe setting for guests.

The story: In a world where social distancing is the norm, Sarah is approached in the street by a stranger passing by, who turns out to be much more than he seems. Over 45 minutes, Sarah’s life will be forever changed by this extraordinary moment of C-O-N-T-A-C-T. A beautiful story of love, loss, catharsis, and redemption.
