Closed Door

Hear true stories of domestic violence, reenacted wholly inside a Paris apartment.

a play against domestic violence

Responding to the rising domestic violence and femicide, the company Door 1 Immersive introduces the play “Closed Door”.
Through the unique lens of immersive theater, we unveil the reality behind an abusive relationship.

This project is a collaboration among Paris' top art & cultural institutions.


You're invited to a birthday DINNER party, where unsettling truth unravels...

The young couple Jack and Emily recently moved to Paris, and are throwing a party for Jack's birthday! The audience are invited to the party, where they realize that things are not as perfect as they seem.

Based on real accounts of domestic violence, the play allows the audience to witness the hidden reality of an abusive relationship behind closed door.

*This performance explores the emotional and psychological aspects of domestic abuse and does not portray any physical violence.

The performance takes place inside a real apartment, offering an immersive experience.

Seated together in a dining table of fifteen, the audience will be watching the interactions between Emily and Jack. The surrounding spaces and decors will be interactive, inviting the audiences to notice clues and hidden messages.

* The audience may choose to actively interact with the performers and their surroundings, or sit comfortably and watch the events.

Jack & Emily are the perfect couple to everyone's eyes. They just moved to Paris through a once-in-a-lifetime job offer. In a new city, isolated and far away from home, the couple find themselves facing new difficult feelings.
