Journey Around My Bedroom: A Virtual Experience

New Ohio Theater presents Journey Around My Bedroom, a online interactive experience for young and all audiences, written by Dianne Nora and directed by Jaclyn Biskup

Journey Around My Bedroom is loosely inspired by a work of the same title by the 18th-century French writer Xavier de Maistre—a peculiar travelogue conceived during six-weeks of house arrest—that transformed his confinement into a fresh perspective on his life.

Synopsis:

Xavi is a little girl with a big imagination, stranded alone in her bedroom. When a mysterious visitor drops by looking for a missing part to fix his magical flying machine, they explore the hidden depths of her room and use the power of imagination to turn her isolation into an epic indoor voyage.

This online interactive experience borrows techniques of the Victorian toy theatre (like paper cutout characters) and combines them with contemporary style puppetry and original songs. Designed specifically for online viewing, it invites viewers to turn their cameras on to participate in select scenes. More info on the production here
