JAM CAPSULE, AN IMMERSIVE CULTURAL EXPERIENCE

JAM CAPSULE is an innovative scenic device, which immerses its audience in a completely unique sound and visual cultural experience. Viewers understand and learn by literally traveling through a series of thematic works broadcasted in 360°.
The works, which are presented in the form of 50-minute capsules, comprise different forms of art, from dance to music, painting to cinema, ecology to architecture. Any theme is possible, provided it is treated with care and its uniqueness is respected.
The choice of the word capsule gives us a name for this creation format. It is neither a film, nor a documentary, nor an exhibition in the traditional sense of the word. It is a unique immersive experience, which takes the audience on an emotionally, physically and intellectually rich journey.

For this new part of Tom Volf's multifaceted Maria by Callas* project, JAM CAPSULE presents you with the greatest voice of the century.

Devised entirely from archives and in collaboration with the Maria Callas Endowment Fund, the Maria by Callas experience immerses visitors in the world of the diva. Supervised by Tom Volf - author, director, curator of the eponymous exhibition and recognized expert on the singer - this immersive scenography with giant projections gives us the opportunity to rediscover the singer’s greatest songs. We will feel the intense emotions that her powerful voice inspires, but also this unique idea allows us to see her face and her expressions. The scenic extracts and the private super8 films reveal in turn the artist and the woman. From unpublished images to personal letters narrated by Fanny Ardant, this experience creates a real intimacy and gives visitors a sense of closeness to the singer.

A capsule for the whole family, for both opera lovers and novices, everyone will have the opportunity to discover this art that Callas herself made popular and accessible to many people.

*Maria by Callas, which was released in theaters in more than 45 countries and was the most seen French film abroad in 2018, gives the name to this exhibition that was the very first at La Seine Musicale, and inspired 3 books including the latest
