The Magic Hour

Co-produced by The Theatre Centre and Jess Dobkin


ASL Interpreted performance on January 13
This production contains haze, flashing lights, and mature content. Not suitable for children.

The Magic Hour is a solo performance that uses magic to explore trauma and transformation, asking us to consider who we are beyond the stories we tell about our lives. The work presses the boundaries of what is deemed public and private, hidden and revealed, to make visible what is not seen.
