Electric Company Theatre The Magic Hour

Electric Company Theatre’s Magic Hour

The Magic Hour is an immersive, walk-through, theatrical experience; a light-charged story of finding beauty in small moments and possibility within domestic isolation.

Created and conceived by award-winning theatre director Kim Collier with playwright Kendra Fanconi, the individual experience invites you to embark on a solo room-by-room exploration of familiar, yet-transformed spaces at Presentation House Theatre. The destination of this curious and magical journey is a reflection on an unprecedented year – and a step forward into a brave new world.

Guided through scenes by rich audio, video, lighting and stagecraft, and created in collaboration with Vancouver’s Innovation Lighting and Presentation House Theatre, Kim describes the piece as “A lovesong for the possibility of change in even the most static of situations”.

The Magic Hour explores the routes of the imagination; the physical world meets the digital world, blending art, design, music and text in a multi-layer mixed-media feast for the senses.

  • When: August 3 to 22, 2021 (book a slot, entry every 3-5 minutes)
  • Where: Presentation House Theatre (333 Chesterfield Ave, North Vancouver)
  • Tickets: Tickets: $27 Solo / $44 Tandem. The Magic Hour is designed as a solo journey; some aspects of the experience may be diminished or not possible during a Tandem walk-through. Book online or phone (604) 990-3474.

While the show is specifically designed for an individual audience member, a tandem experience can be booked within your household bubble but may impact certain elements of the installation experience.

Return to the theatre safely, and be enveloped by this electrical storm of a show. Timed individual entry slots and isolated rooms support public health measures, while also creating a personalized experience, unique for each person that walks-through. The Magic Hour is a show for you and made with you – just you, and only you.
