"DOSSIER : Le théâtre immersif"

by Hélène Chevrier

L’effet de l’immersion est radical pour ceux qui l’ont pratiquée. Pour Simón Hanukai, elle sollicite tous les sens du spectateur. "Dans le théâtre classique on utilise seulement nos yeux et nos oreilles. Dans le théâtre immersif, on utilise tous nos sens et tout le corps. Je trouve que c'est très intéressant sur tout dans le monde dans lequel on vit […] C'est une expérience pour vivre de manière différente".

SPACES activated a building that is routinely used to demoralize and stifle the human soul and made it a place of authentic connection and profound witnessing. Few things have inspired me and restored my hope in how we might connect moving forward.

... this celebration of people coming together that I’m so honored that I get to be a part of. Maybe these folks have not been to a live performance in over a year, and I get to lay out a carpet for them and say, “Welcome home to your city.”
