Winter Wonders will shine bright like a diamond with new and innovative light installations enhancing the event.
“Light Pillars” on Place Sainte-Catherine
This year Place Sainte-Catherine, which has hosted cutting-edge video mappings recently, will be the stage for an incredible show.
In cold weather, the light crossing suspended ice crystals fills the night sky with strange dazzling columns reaching for the stars. The auroras borealis, a natural, rare and mesmerizing atmospheric phenomenon, have inspired the “Columns of Light”. Taking place in the centre of the beautiful Place Sainte-Catherine, they will recreate the shapes and movements of the Northern Lights.
Each column will feature light effects. Visitors can interact with each one to create their own design. Activating all the columns simultaneously will cause waves of light to illuminate all areas of the square, reaching the church spire and showcasing its stunning architecture.
