A must-see immersive physical play
Intact follows a soldier who returns from war and is unable to relate to who they once were. This physically intense and stellar theatre production by Fuser Production showcased very few words. The soft moody lighting felt more dream-like and surreal.

Intact captured the power of reflection of body and mind, and how one must own the problem, instead of letting it own you.

The performance raised questions, what is war good for? Do the people who initiate the war know the emotional scars that a returned soldier endures?

The production also showcased a journey of reminiscing, expressiveness and transforming. We, the audience, were invited into the mind of a returned injured soldier who must come to terms that they have lost control of their lower body.

The trials and tribulations of an injured returned soldier are thrust upon us in a raw, emotional and expressive physical manner where no words were expressed, yet the room was filled with the loudness of pain, frustration, and anger.

Intact is a story where the audience sees the soldier's perspective in an immersive performance. It is also where you begin to ask yourself how one can learn to change and adapt to the new way of life.

Overall, the performer (Olivia Hadley) did a magnificent performance showcasing the power of the mind and all emotions without using any words.

Lighting and sounds effects were on point, and the performance was enjoyable.

Tickets can be purchased online.
