A legendary figure in the myth of the conquest of the West, the experience Call me Calamity has taken the challenge of telling the origins of the legend of Calamity Jane. Abandoned on the plains by her father at the age of 13, young Martha Jane has to use her storytelling skills to survive and take care of her siblings, played by the participants. From Deadwood to Dora Dufran's brothel, the young girl displays panache and humor in contrast to the harshness of the West. Participants accompany Martha Jane Canary on her adventures, eventually seeing her transformed into Calamity Jane.

This fantastically theatrical character is reborn from the ashes thanks to technology. Motion capture and virtual reality give the actress the tools to put herself in the shoes of Calamity Jane and interact with the audience. As she tells her story, virtual reality allows her to change virtual environments, and put on new costumes with the snap of a finger. Call me Calamity becomes an incredible playground to improvise with the spectators.
