“Speaking Vibrations is the next evolution of theatre: an immersive, inclusive and multi-sensory experience in ASL song/poetry, music, rhythm tap & dance. Sound, song and story are experienced visually through projected graphics and dynamic captions, as well as tactically through feeling and vibration; in-person audiences will get to wear and hold vibrotactile stimuli (vibrating vests, seats, belts & pillows) during the performance while audiences at home experience the show with remote technology,*” the Great Canadian Theatre Company website states.
