This performance deals with themes of sexual violence and other abuses that represent the lived experience of many women with disabilities, but it contains no graphic depictions of them.
Performances of VIOLETTE are accessible to patrons with reduced mobility as well as to patrons using wheelchairs. This piece is not available in LSQ (Québec sign language), ASL (American Sign Language), or described audio.
Age restrictions and important safety precautions
For reasons of health and safety, the use of virtual reality headsets is strictly reserved for patrons ages 13+. This restriction has been established by the manufacturers of Oculus Rift S and Samsung Gear VR.
You are advised against wearing a VR (Virtual Reality) headset if you are suffering from sleep deprivation or anxiety, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or experiencing migraines, earaches, or dizziness. These conditions may increase your sensitivity to adverse effects.
People who are subject to motion sickness are also more likely to experience discomfort while using a VR headset.
If you are pregnant, or elderly, or if you live with psychiatric illness, binocular vision anomalies, heart disease, seizures, or other serious conditions – or if you use a pacemaker and/or a hearing aid – we recommend that you consult a doctor before using a VR headset.
Do not use a VR headset if you have symptoms of strabismus, amblyopia, or anisometropia.
These symptoms may be aggravated by the use of a VR headset.
Just like when you disembark from a cruise ship, the effects of exposure to virtual reality may persist and even be amplified a few hours after use. Side-effects may include: the symptoms described above; extreme drowsiness; and reduced ability to function. These symptoms may increase the risk of injury when undertaking normal activities in the real world.
By choosing to participate in this VR experience, you confirm that you have read this notice.
