The Apartment – First Experiment


The creator of The Stranger (multiple worldwide sold out runs) and Off Limits Zone (Luminato Festival) brings you an initial experiment for a new interactive experience around the theme of immigration. The project is presented by DopoLavoro Teatrale (DLT) in partnership with the Theatre Centre and Istituto Italiano di Cultura.

Alone, you step inside the apartment of a recent immigrant. Explore the environment around you and discover the story of the person who lives there. You become the actor of your own experience and connect with the life, challenges and desires of a new comer to Canada. As you delve farther inside their world you become the tenant yourself; perhaps leaving bits of your own story behind.

Dates: June 9th -18th. Slots are every 35 mins from 5:30 until 10:45pm

Duration: Variable, depending on the audience interaction (30 to 35 minutes).

The event is free of charge. A donation at the door is welcomed for the future development of the project. Suggested donation is $20.
