Tickets & Information:
Lasting Impressions invites Montrealers to rediscover the emotional power of art through a breathtaking new immersive experience, conceived and created by Princeton Entertainment Group.
Audiences will witness the spellbinding transformation of the Impressionist masterworks, brought to moving life by Canada’s Northern Gateway Films using cutting-edge 3D Motion Sculpting technology. The effect is breathtaking, as these classic paintings come alive in stunning stereoscopy, inviting audiences to move into and through the canvas, thus fully inhabiting the worlds crafted by the impressionist masters.
Thanks to Holographic 3D, spectators can sit with Renoir’s luncheon guests, dance with Degas’ ballerinas and soar into Van Gogh’s Starry Night. During this truly unique experience, they can spend Sunday in the Park with George and move among the famous characters on Seurat’s Isle of La Grande Jatte.
The New York and LA Times rave about Liminal Space (who invented and developed the patented screen), said to be “redefining what people can come to expect from live events.”
The word Impressionism was first used when painters including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, pursued painting “en plein air”, placing their easels along the banks of the Seine and on the streets of Paris. These artists became known as The Impressionists because their work – rather than being realistic, left observers to add their own interpretation. With swipes of colour and swirls of light, they were creating something beyond reality, something perhaps even more beautiful than reality.
Debuting January 5th at Le Studio-Cabaret / Espace St-Denis (Montreal’s newest and most innovative entertainment setting), Lasting Impressions will offer audiences the experience of being one of The Impressionists… They will see the world through their eyes – the moving clouds, a ray of sun over the Seine, a sudden rainfall on a Paris street, light on the water lilies… illuminating, fading and flickering. Each painting comes to life as if one is witnessing that exact moment of inspiration.
The presentation is accompanied by a perfectly choreographed soundtrack. The masterpieces of Debussy, Ravel and other composers, as well as the French standards by Piaf, Aznavour and Mouskouri, are perfectly synchronized with the art as it surrounds the audience. With a special introduction by Sophie Renoir (great-granddaughter of Auguste Renoir), Lasting Impressions takes people into the minds and works of the most famous artists in history.
Over-and-above the colossal, captivating 3D presentation, the audience will be surrounded by LED screens which will complement the principal feature with footage created exclusively for the Montreal production.
The environment at Le Studio-Cabaret will place the audience in a Paris bistro from the Impressionist era. Also produced exclusively for the Montreal engagement, will be a remarkable 360° LED pre-show, featuring profiles, additional works of the legendary Impressionists and footage of Paris from their era… accompanied by another enchanting soundtrack.
