presented by Theatre Passe Muraille

“An immersive performance beyond the visual”

Camille: The Story is an immersive performance designed to engage all of the senses—except sight. After his close friend Camille’s departure, Pierre navigates her absence and revisits memories that take shape through movement, smell and sound.

Grounded both in the real and the surreal, the story sheds light on Pierre’s emotional journey as he faces the loss of a meaningful friendship and tries to create ties with new people. From Montreal based artist Audrey-Anne Bouchard and her team of collaborators, Camille: The Story offers a sensory experience that is accessible to people who are Blind, Low Vision, or sighted. Sighted and Low Vision audience members will be asked to wear a blindfold for the duration of the work. The work will be offered in both English and French versions. Bouchard received the Outstanding Direction award at the 2022 Montreal English Theatre Awards for the piece.

Camille: The Story will be a relaxed run. A Relaxed Environment (RE) is created for audiences who have various access needs that a traditional theatre environment does not accommodate. Before a Relaxed Environment performance, audiences will get an Access Guide that gives them all the information they need to know for the performance (directions to the theatre, pre-show warnings, etc.) Find out more about Relaxed Environments here.

If you would like information on the topics or themes in our productions, or to determine the suggested age for attending a performance, please reach out to our Box Office staff at 416.504.7529 or by email at info@passemuraille.on.ca.

This production is part of our #BeyondTO festival!

Also check out #BeyondTO’s other production, Soliloquio!

 Soliloquio is based on a series of letters creator Tiziano Cruz wrote to his mother in 2020. Reaching her across boundaries of geography and class, Cruz uses the letters as the starting point for a critique of economic, racial and institutional oppression. As an Indigenous artist, he speaks about the suffering his people have endured under a system of white supremacy, examining the role the nation plays in Argentina’s culture of inequality.
