Eve Of St. George: Toronto’s first immersive, theatrical dance experience
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. A dozen daunting spaces — some open, others locked — in The Great Hall, located at 1087 Queen Street West, Toronto.
Tickets: $55, available here.
