After four years on the stage delighting the hearts of young and old alike, the show Little Witch continues its journey in a new guise. A true voyage for the eye and ear, the Listening Room presents this contemporary fairy tale in an augmented version that offers an immersive listening experience.   

Upon arrival, audience members receive a set of wireless headphones with three language options: English, French or Spanish. Then they are guided to a circular room formed by four walls of projections. Comfortably seated on floor cushions, audience members are plunged into the story of Little Witch, presented as a captivating soundscape illustrated by images projected on the four wall screens.    

Evocative and visual, the Listening Room’s poetic world ignites the imagination. Combining synthetic imaging with shadow play, this collective listening experience conjures fantastical worlds sure to entrance each and every audience member, young and old alike.
