Those looking for an immersive theatrical experience don’t have to travel too far this month.
Transcendance Project, a Toronto-based contemporary dance company, has announced the opening of EVE OF ST. GEORGE, Toronto’s first immersive dance production inspired by and with cast from New York City’s smash-hit theatrical experience Sleep No More.
Described as “equal parts disturbing and seductive,” this local theatrical experience takes guests through a voyeuristic and interactive recreation of Bram Stoker’s chilling tale of Dracula, scored by award-winning Canadian composer Owen Belton.
The audience is then greeted, masked and set free to roam four levels of a creaky building as the story unfolds around and interacts with them. 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.
Evocative, sensual and unnerving, are you ready?
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.
Where: A dozen daunting spaces — some open, others locked — in The Great Hall, located at 1087 Queen Street West
Tickets: $55, available here
