Montreal can soon add a pyramid to its list of incredible venues.
The first-of-its-kind pyramid-shaped entertainment venue, PY1, was created by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté and developed by his company Lune Rouge.
The innovative venue will offer a multi-sensory experience, state-of-the-art technology and “a unique playground” for multimedia entertainment combining high tech with the talent of the greatest digital creators.

The PY1 experience is slated to make its worldwide debut with Through the Echoes, a show produced exclusively for the pyramid, on June 1, located near the Clock Tower grounds in the Old Port.
“Through The Echoes will be a totally immersive experience, a technological and emotional odyssey which tells the story of life from the Big Bang until today,” explained Guy Laliberté, the founder of Lune Rouge. “The audience will play the main role and take center stage.”
The pyramid venue, designed for the general public, will provide four possible configurations that will hold up to 1,000 people. After hours, the structure will transform into a nightclub that will house sound and visual effects as well as performances by carefully selected DJs.
As if the experience doesn’t sound intriguing enough, official photos have surfaced from PY1’s social sites and it looks like we’re in for a trippy ride.
