RIOPELLE GRANDEUR NATURE - SPECTACLE
The immersive show "RIOPELLE Grandeur Nature" will crown the festivities of Jean Paul Riopelle's centenary celebrations. This exceptional production will offer a journey into the heart of Riopelle's work and the nature that has always inspired him.
Using 360° video projection technologies, infrared motion capture, and a spatialized sound system, the studio of Les 7 Doigts will be transformed into a truly immersive venue, evoking Riopelle's vast studios, the magnificent landscapes he frequented, and presenting monumental artworks. The audience will also have the chance to admire original artworks by the artist in the lobby.
The show is built around iconic artworks from different artistic periods of Riopelle's life, allowing the discovery of lesser-known pieces as well. Starting from the artists’ introspective point of view on the eve of the creation of his monumental “Hommage à Rosa Luxemburg,” the flights of the owl and the wild goose lead us on a truly remarkable odyssey through Riopelle's rich creative universe.
A creation by Samuel Tétreault in coproduction with the Fondation Jean Paul Riopelle.
NOTE: The show is presented in French.
