MONTRÉAL, Oct. 21, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - How would you like to journey to the heart of the cosmos and explore its splendours, to a soundtrack of entrancing symphonic music? Well, you can! But you'll have to hurry, since there are only two weeks left to enjoy the fabulous interstellar adventures now playing at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium! Continuum, created by the renowned Montréal artistic duo of Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, and From the Earth to the Stars, a captivating virtual journey through the immensity of the Cosmos, are still playing until November 2, 2014. Since April 2013, over half a million people have thrilled to these two unique experiences that brilliantly combine art, science and emotion – precisely what Montréal Space for Life is all about!
Whizzing through the Cosmos
These two original shows take a different approach to astronomy, thanks to the know-how and exceptional creativity of local artists. In Continuum, Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon offer a truly original and daring vision that whisks audiences off on a spectacular voyage from the infinitely small to the infinitely large! Their profoundly poetic vision of the Universe is enhanced by an entrancing soundtrack featuring the music of Philip Glass. A virtual voyage through our galaxy and far beyond, From the Earth to the Stars is an interstellar journey of discovery. Hosted by an expert astronomer, the show takes a scientific look at the complexity and immensity of our Universe.
And then ...
Starting November 13, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium will be presenting two new shows and a new exhibition. With its boldly innovative program of activities, the Planetarium will continue exploring the Universe through new complementary immersive experiences, in line with its mission of encouraging visitors to experience astronomy from new angles.
