Zoom Guidelines

As audience members, your audio will be automatically muted and video turned off as you enter the **~~~virtual space~~~**. If we wish to see you at some point, this will always come as an invitation. A window will pop up in which you can accept or decline to be seen. The choice is yours.

We ask that you also remain muted. On the bottom left hand corner you'll see a microphone icon, be sure it's set to mute now.

There are many icons and ways to reformat what you see on Zoom. We suggest you remain in full screen mode throughout the show for the best viewing experience. Take a moment to explore how clicking on icons may open up side thumbnails, and then close them. Your experience of a cluttered or clean screen is up to you, though we invite you to self curate what you do and don't see at any given point throughout this show.

You are invited and encouraged to participate through written text throughout the performance. On the bottom of your screen you'll see a chat button. Click on this to type and chat with fellow audience members and the cast at any point throughout the show.

Content warnings

*It is important to note that this show is heavily influenced by the participation of the audience. The performers cannot predict what information could be circulated throughout the online interactive platforms.

  • Intimacy
  • Sexuality
  • Mental health struggles
  • COVID-19 and quarantine

Descriptions of horror themes (including bodily harm/death)

*due to the interactive nature of the show it is more effective for us to list the themes that will most definitely NOT reside in our stream of consciousness-

  • Sexual abuse or harm
