There’s nothing quite like really immersive theatre, and whether you’ve experienced it or not, you should make time for what’s sure to be an eerily exciting couple of hours over at the Great Hall Toronto.
Transcendance Project — a Toronto-based contemporary dance company led by award-winning choreographer, dancer and Artistic Director Julia Cratchley brings us Eve of St. George, Toronto’s first immersive dance production inspired by and with cast members from New York City’s smash-hit theatrical experience Sleep No More.
Expect equal parts disturbing and seductive, Eve of St. George is a voyeuristic and immersive recreation of Bram Stoker’s chilling tale of Dracula, scored by award-winning Canadian composer Owen Belton. The audience is greeted, masked and set free to roam four levels of a creaky building as the story unfolds around and interacts with them. Evocative, sensual and unnerving, each guest experience is different as they follow a character, explore uncharted spaces, rifle through private effects and become entangled in the lives — both choreographed and improvised — of 16 characters.
Where: A dozen daunting spaces — some open, others locked — in The Great Hall, located at 1087 Queen Street West, Toronto.
When: Friday, January 26 at 7:00 pm & 10:00 pm, Saturday January 27 at 7:00 pm & 10:00 pm and Sunday January 28 at 7:00 pm.
