    Kyma - Power of Waves

    Launched at Montreal Space for Life’s Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium in May 2017 and seen by more than 100,000 viewers, Kyma transports audiences into a 360-degree allegorical tale of how our universe—and everyone in it—is composed of waves. Exploring everything from music to light, from the smallest particle to vast galaxies, Kyma is a voyage through the wavelength of life, a stunning and immersive show that combines the skills of artists, musicians and acrobats.
    Beyond Infinity

    A journey through painting and space, and a piece of experimental filmmaking, Beyond Infinity mixes visual abstraction, a haunting musical score by musicians Nazar Rybak, Jack White and Jon Wright, and 360 degree projection to take the viewer beyond the boundaries of the cosmos into the parallel world of artistic creation.  The film reflects on the physical universe, its dark side. It brings painting into full-dome cinema to challenge and push the traditional usage of the two media.

    LAMPARIUM is a visual and sound work, a sensory and emotional experimentation gaze by light. The creation puts the viewer into a world of hundreds of anthropomorphic lamps. By their presence and daily activities, these animated light become a reflection of the spectators. The theatrical story is a vision of connections between lights and humans, from our urban spaces to the universe.
