Literally Titanium poses a question: In the age of body positivity, where does chronic illness fit? Throughout the cabaret-style show, multi award winning disabled artist Ophira Calof plays her body as a character finally getting its moment in the spotlight. Using music, comedy and storytelling, she explores the relationship between her body and mind as they navigate a world that wasn’t built for them.
Relaxed performances on January 8, 13, 15, & 19. Modified relaxed performances on January 11 & January 18. ASL interpreted performance & talkback on January 15. Audio described performances by Kat Germain & talkback on January 18 & 19. Visual story available as a screen reader accessible PDF. Wheelchair accessible venue. Wheelchair accessible washroom on the second floor. Elevator to second floor. Complimentary tickets for support persons – please book in advance. Service animals welcome. Priority seating is available up to 25 minutes before the performance. More venue accessibility information is available on the Toronto Fringe website. Please note: Literally Titanium will feature two styles of relaxed performance. All performances of Literally Titanium will feature an introduction. Patrons will be free to enter and exit as needed. There is a quiet space with a live feed of the show available that patrons may visit at any time throughout every performance. Our modified relaxed performance is ideal for folks who may benefit from a darker and less stimulating sensory environment in the audience. House lights will not be kept on for these performances. Additionally, patrons will be asked to keep sudden sounds, movements, and the use of handheld devices to a minimum, where possible. Standard relaxed performances will have the house lights on, dimly. Audiences are welcome to do what makes them feel most comfortable including the use of fidgets, making noises, or moving about. We will also be offering an ASL Interpreted performance, as well as two audio described performances where the visual elements of the piece will be narrated by a professional describer into receivers with headsets.
