The magic of special effects – You can finally discover the secrets and illusions that have brought forth the magic of moving images in cinema for over a century.

Phi Centre’s Virtual Reality Garden

From now until June 21st @ PHI Centre

In this spotlight on Montreal-based virtual reality pioneers Felix & Paul Studios, we present an eclectic, powerful selection of seven of the studio’s unique cinematic VR experiences, works never before seen at Phi. Among the pieces are Felix & Paul collaborations with Cirque du Soleil. 

GLORIA

May 2nd – May 6th @ Theatre La Chapelle

Gloria, an immersive opera that seamlessly intertwines electronic music, VJing and vocal performance, is at once a eulogy of beauty, of the sacred, of creative spirits and of excess. Sovereign and alone, surrounded by screens placed 360 degrees around the audience, Mykalle Bielinkski delivers an ethereal polyphonic vocal performance so entrancing that it blends into the myriad of projections around her. 

SKAWENNATI

From 25th May @ Ellephant

Skawennati offers a rereading of the past and the anticipated future so that they resonate with the culture, history and identity of the First Nations people. The machinimagraphs on view in this exhibition are from Skawennati’s machinimas "TimeTraveller™"(2008-2013) and "She Falls for Ages" (2017), shot in "Second Life".
