A TOULOUSE TO LOOSEN YOU UP

Beginning September 30, Bated Breath Theatre Company will present VOYEUR: THE WINDOWS OF TOULOUSE-LAUTREC, a pandemic-friendly theatrical walking tour conceived and directed by Mara Lieberman. It is inspired by their long-running immersive hit at Madame X, Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec, which has been paused by the pandemic. This open air, intimate theatrical experience guides a six-person audience through the dreams of iconic artist Toulouse-Lautrec as he recalls his final absinthe-laced years living and working in Montmartre.

The sidewalks, doorways and windows of Greenwich Village become the setting for VOYEUR as live accompaniment collides with the city’s soundscape, transporting attendees into the bohemian world of 1899 Paris. During the tour, audience members are led to iconic locations within the Village, including Judson Church, The Duplex and Chashama — with other secret stops along the way.

In an effort to maintain additional safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, patrons are required to wear a mask at all times and maintain a safe social distance for the duration of the performance (hand sanitizing stations will be available at stops throughout the tour). The event is hosted primarily outdoors, with one short venture indoors into a spacious atmosphere capable of safe social distancing. A flexible ticket exchange policy will be offered to those who may feel ill.
