 —  —

The Great Canadian Theatre Company, 1233 Wellington St. W, Ottawa, ON

created by Jo-Anne Bryan, Carmelle Cachero, King Kimbit & Jordan Samonas Speaking Vibrations is the next evolution of theatre: an immersive, inclusive and multi-sensory experience in ASL song/poetry, music, rhythm tap & dance. Sound, song and story are experienced visually through projected graphics and dynamic captions, as well as tactically through feeling and vibration; in-person audiences will get to wear and hold vibrotactile stimuli (vibrating vests, seats, belts & pillows) during the performance while audiences at home experience the show with remote technology.

a single sign told a story she lifts her hand. sound moved through her and within me she signs my sensations. my fears and dreams fell out in her rhythm something stirs in me what happens when I come into contact with a body in all its forms? when I see in my feet, hear in my hands and speak in vibrations?

Show Times Tuesday - Friday 8pm
