Cité Mémoire, now available in the Old Montreal !
May 24, 2016
A creation by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, in collaboration with Michel Marc Bouchard.
Loosely inspired by the history of Montreal,Cité Mémoire invites you to meet a host of characters who’ve witnessed the city’s evolution first-hand. Poetic, dreamlike and occasionally playful, the tableaux come alive with images, words and music. Projected throughout Old Montreal, the work appears on the very walls that surround us, the ground on which we walk, the trees that frame our present. Every evening at dusk, starting on May 18.
For a complete Cité Mémoire experience, download Montréal en Histoires free application. Soundtrack and historical contexts available in 4 languages.
The tableaux presented in Cité Mémoire cover a range of milestones in Montréal’s history, well-known (or not so well-known) characters, or sometimes a local slice of life. Narrative or impressionist, touching or amusing, they express our values of coexistence, innovation, tolerance and generosity that are the foundation of our city.
