A new ice age has fallen on the Earth. The winters have started to get longer. Even the strongest built dwellings are damaged by the frost. The cold is beginning to get worse and gusts of wind from the north have begun to hit Québec. Faced with an urgent desire to preserve their heritage and history from the ice, humans have built 400-metre diameter domes to save certain places from imminent destruction.
This is Glacial Reality, a virtual reality experience that will have its exclusive premier at the Festival, and then be presented in other cities around the world. A debut concept from Québec City company STUDIO ELEMENT, in collaboration with artist Samuel Matteau (“Elsewhere”, 2018).
Imagine a cube of a few square metres, in which you enter alone with only a helmet covering your eyes and ears. Are you ready? The journey begins, immersive and poetic, to discover a Place D’Youville that is transfigured by fragments of the past and projections of the future.
