“The Complex” is a cutting edge immersive and interactive digital theatre experience that will be presented as part of the 2022
Next Stage Festival Digital Performance Series, running from January 19 – 30.

The Complex brings together immersive theatrical experiences (eg. Sleep No More), the ever-popular world of reality television gaming (eg. Survivor) and competitive dystopian fantasies (eg. Hunger Games).

About the show: Set in a dystopian world after years of upset and division, The Architects have devised a procedure to overcome the imperilling disintegration of society. Part immersive theatre, part reality television, and part competitive dystopian fantasy, The Complex invites you to share virtual space and directly impact the outcome of the event. Audience members will be chosen to come together and, under the watchful eye of the anonymous Chamber, must collaborate collectively in the selection of a worthy candidate to lead us all to better days.

You are: a confident improviser, comfortable working virtually, experienced with interactive audience productions.

Actor Technical Requirements:

  •       You must have access to a working computer (desktop or laptop) with a strong webcam, audio and a very reliable internet/hardwired Ethernet cable connection
  •       Our tech department will work with you to customize your setup.
  •       You must have access to a private and secure environment. 

Payment: Pending successful grant applications, The Complex is a profit-share model. Fundraising is planned regardless.

Time Commitment: Rehearsals to begin late October. Two workshops in November. Performances January 19 – 30.

  • Specifically seeking applicants who identify as First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Black, People of Colour, Mad, D/deaf, Disabled, and the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
