It’s cold outside, but let’s play
Just in case you haven’t heard of the Montreal’s apocryphal underground winter city (like me), don’t worry it’s regarded as folklore. However, the organizers of The Quartier des Spectacles are pleased to announce the installation of Impluse, the work that will take over the Place des Festivals this winter for the sixth annual edition of Luminothérapie. The premise behind Luminothérapie is to bring people out onto the streets - despite the temperatures.
The creative consortium will also produce video projections for the nine permanent projection sites in the Quartier des Spectacles. Two Montreal-based artists will be responsible for the projections: Maotik and Iregular, with soundtracks for the projections and for the Place des Festivals by Toronto-based artist Mitchell Akiyama.
Impulse a participatory creation by the firms Lateral Office, and CS Design, in collaboration with EGP Group.
