An Illuminated Playground in the Quartier des Spectacles

6th Annual edition of Luminothérapie

Impulsion is an interactive work comprising 30 seesaws of various sizes, with lighting and sound. To activate them, one person sits down on each end. The seesaws, fitted with LED lights and speakers, then produce a series of beautiful sounds. The intensity of the light varies as the board’s angle changes. The installation and its streamlined design will delight children and adults as they play with the sounds and lighting effects it produces, filling the Place des Festivals with a dance of sounds and lights, bringing joy and warmth to the winter’s cold, short days and dark nights.

Fulfilling the mandate to create a unified Luminothérapie concept, as well as a complement to the large-scale installation, 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.

From Sunday to Wednesday: 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
From Thursday to Saturday: 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.
