Overview

Violette welcomes you into her space. She lets you enter the privacy of her room and then of her imagination. Put on your VR headset and become the sole witness to Violette’s untold story, both magical and tragic. You may never look at this world – the one you share with Violette and the rest of us – quite the same way again.

This immersive experience – a hybrid of interactive theatre and virtual reality – offers an intimate exchange with a neurodivergent performer, while tackling themes of isolation and consent. Led by an entirely female and inclusive team, Violette breaks down barriers while addressing a reality experienced by too many neurodivergent women: tragically, between 70% and 90% are survivors of sexual abuse during their lives.

About Joe Jack et John

Joe Jack et John is a theatre company producing multidisciplinary and performative works combining video, dance and spoken word in French and English. Its artistic approach integrates artists from various backgrounds, like neurodivergent actors or those from diverse cultural landscapes. The specificity of its cast aims to shine light on unique human encounters and each play is centred around a contemporary social issue. Joe Jack et John bring forward voices that are rarely heard to stimulate conversations around current issues so that we can improve the dialogue within our society through art. Violette, an immersive experience for theatre and virtual reality, is the tenth production of the company.
