Monday to Saturday: noon to 7 PM
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. By showcasing the work of two Quebecois cultural leaders whose creative influence impacts the world, we hope to examine and celebrate our home grown talent. We are inspired by Felix & Paul’s courage, creativity and vision, as the studio and artists behind it continue to take risks and embark on new, groundbreaking projects.
The selection of works also illustrate virtual reality’s broad range and potential. On the fantastical extreme, be part of four Cirque du Soleil experiences: Enter KÀ The Battle Within, an epic martial arts adventure. Engage with a 360 performance by the cast of Cirque’s Zarkana. Step Inside the Box of Kurios-Cabinet of Curiosities in this Daytime Emmy® award-winning piece that plays with your senses. Dive into the aquatic world of DREAMS OF “O” with acrobats, fire, and surreal amphibious characters. Then, explore a more documentary-driven expression of VR’s potential in two works featuring former President Obama. Through the Ages: President Obama Celebrates America’s National Parks, and the trailer for The People’s House: Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama. Finally, Jurassic World: Apatosaurus, by Felix & Paul Studios brings you close to a dinosaur.
Access to the installation is restricted to 13+
