The Magic Hour

[metaslider id=”2327″]

“The sun is about to go down. This is the Magic Hour.
The term refers to the light that makes everything look more beautiful. Take this in.
And take this time, for yourself.
That is what the theatre is for.
You are the Audience, and you are allowed to be selfish.
Take it all for yourself; we invite you.”

The Magic Hour


The Only Animal and friends are welcoming back live theatre with a hybrid offering, the VR version of last summer’s immersive show, The Magic Hour. The Magic Hour is a light-charged story of finding beauty in small moments and possibilities within domestic isolation.

Created and conceived by award-winning theatre director Kim Collier with playwright Kendra Fanconi, the original show invited you to go on an individual experience on a solo room-by-room exploration of familiar, yet-transformed spaces at Presentation House Theatre.

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”.

For one week only you can get the full VR experience at Boca del Lupo’s tiny theatre, The Fishbowl, as part of LivePerformance360.

Magic Hour 360 is produced by The Only Animal & Electric Company Theatre.

It runs March 30th – April 3rd, 2022
