As a little bit of snow fills up your Tuesday, here are five events happening in Montreal worthy of checking out today, January 15.

Luminothérapie

Place des Festivals is shining through the use of dominos, music and lights.

The installation features 120 giant dominos spread out across several different stations. The public is invited to play with them, each creating different music and luminous effects in the process.

The dominos are all topple-able as a musical orchestra of dominos illuminate in a rainbow of pastel hues, hues and gorgeous pics (proof here).
