SAT Circuit – International Tour of Fulldome Shows

An immersive light, sound and visual art show inside a dome has taken over Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology (SAT). To use scientific language to describe the event, we’d say it’s totally trippy.

The SAT has launched its international SAT Circuit, a selection of immersive works around the themes of movement and hybridity.

Trajectories, positions, distances, scales and speed are all interwoven in a show with music, fusing audiovisual and “infinite tridimensional space” in a complex and dynamic ecosystem.

Yeah, trippy.

Time: Various times
Where: 1201, Boulevard Saint-Laurent
Price: $17 – $40, available online
