#FIRSTLOOK: “THE LIBRARY AT NIGHT”
We present to you the latest immersive experience to hit Toronto at 1 Yonge Street! By Canadian Theatre Artist Robert Lepage, THE LIBRARY AT NIGHT will run between March 10 to April 18, 2022.
Inspired by Argentinian Canadian writer Alberto Manguel’s acclaimed 2006 book The Library at Night – which explores the theoretical, architectural, and social dimensions that underlie any library’s existence– the exhibit was initially designed by Lepage and his production company Ex Machina to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Montreal’s Grande Bibliothèque in 2015. THE LIBRARY AT NIGHT has since toured internationally including stops in Brazil and Paris, as well as an engagement in Quebec City, now arriving in Toronto, the city Manguel made his Canadian home from 1982-2000.
An immersive scenographic and virtual experience, THE LIBRARY AT NIGHT is dedicated to the poetic, artistic, historical, and philosophical universe of libraries. Employing VR headsets and 360 video immersion technology, the exhibit takes you inside reconstructed or fictional libraries from different historical moments and corners of the world.
Tickets for THE LIBRARY AT NIGHT go on sale to the public February 11th at 10:00am. For more information visit, lighthouseimmersive.com.
