Lisa Theriault: Off-Season

Off-Season, 2019, video still, 21 minutes, HD single-channel video
Off-Season is a 21-minute video, completed in 2019, that reflects on Prince Edward Island’s tourism industry. The footage cycles through views of tourist destinations across the island in the off-season, including closed shops, restaurants, booths, amusement parks, campgrounds, beaches, and entertainment venues. Subtle visible movements of the once bustling locations reveal signs of fall and winter, while cheerful signage and advertisements seem misplaced with few people around to witness them. The audio was recorded at the same sites at the height of summer tourist season, producing a contrast that reveals the transitory nature of our experience of place.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
