Young and old will be dazzled, moved and transported by the magic of images and scenes projected on rippling water walls and other spectacular installations. Montréal Avudo will beautifully superimpose archive images, original documents, illustrations and 3D animations to take us on a voyage through history.
The larger-than-life installations will come alive primarily on the water. Water jets from 30 or so fountains will create massive 30 X 11.5 metre tall screens of water. The scenography will also include 94 shipping containers, creating the world’s highest container tower at 11 stories tall. An original music score composed by Maria Bonzanigo and recorded with the Orchestre Métropolitain and the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal will accompany this exquisite production.
Montréal Avudo’s touching and poetic nature promises to strike a chord with Montrealers and visitors. Through the water, spectators will be able to explore the river’s memories through different eras, seasons and weather, thanks to sound effects and juxtaposed images. Not only will it pay homage to Montréal’s rich past, but it will give us a one-of-a-kind glimpse at its future.
