Jacqueries is a political heist story told through movement — an inside-out experience of conspiracy, security theatre, and solidarity, inspired by parkour’s co-opting of urban space. The audience follows individual performers from scene to scene through urban locations, linked by a custom iPhone app playing synchronized sound and showing 3D video overlays. With a score by multiple Dora award-winning composer John Gzowski and “eye-popping” augmented-reality video, Jacqueries “creates a stylized universe filled with intrigue.” (Wayne Leung, Mooney On Theatre)
