Jacqueries I is a political heist story told through movement — an inside-out experience of conspiracy, security theatre, and solidarity, inspired by parkour’s co-opting of urban space. The audience follows individual performers from scene to scene through undisclosed South Beach urban locations, linked by a custom iPhone app playing synchronized sound and showing 3D video overlays. With a score by multiple Dora award-winning composer John Gzowski and “eye-popping” augmented-reality video, Jacqueries “is almost like being in your own video game, except it’s real.” (Michael Crabb, Toronto Star)
