Guided through scenes by rich audio, video, lighting and stagecraft, The Magic Hour explores the routes of the imagination; the physical world meets the digital world, blending art, design, music and text in a multi-layer mixed-media feast for the senses.  The destination of this curious and magical journey is a reflection on an unprecedented year – and a step forward into a brave new world. LivePerformance360 will take place in-person at The Fishbowl on Granville Island with The Magic Hour 360 produced by Electric Company Theatre and The Only Animal and Pochsy at the Airport Hotel created by Karen Hines for LP360 March 30 to April 3.

“When I am overwhelmed with feeling, my body sort of convulses — like I’m getting kicked in the heart. It’s a form of release, an opening. That happened again and again while I was experiencing The Magic Hour and I’m grateful for it.”
