May 12 to 30, 2021 – VIOLETTE – Theatre and Virtual Reality.
Violette welcomes you into her world. She lets you enter the privacy of her room, and then of her imagination. Only you. Step into her place as into the home of a friend; put on your VR headset; see a universe of snow and forest materialize in front of your eyes; become the sole witness to Violette’s untold story, both magical and tragic.
Created and produced by JOE JACK & JOHN, with Stephanie Boghen and Tamara Brown.
Since its inception 17 years ago, JOE JACK & JOHN’s goal has been to bring forward marginalised voices (collaborating with actors living with intellectual disability) and to make audiences reflect on current issues.
VIOLETTE breaks down barriers while addressing a reality experienced by too many intellectually disabled women. During their lifetime, between 70 % and 90% are victims of sexual abuse.
