Description

This show proves that human creativity has no limits. It originated in 2008 as part of the celebration of Quebec City's 400th anniversary. Here's what the Image Mill is about: it's a large-scale projection, where the Old Port grain silos, some of the most striking architectural structures in the city, are used as a screen. Within 40 or so minutes you will see hundreds of images telling you the story of Quebec and its evolution over the centuries. Produced and performed by Robert Lepage (one of the most admired theater artists and directors in Canada) and his multidisciplinary creative company, Ex Machina, this event is the largest projection in the world. The 600x30m screen quite literally comes alive, when hundreds of images transform this concrete building into a colorful display of moving and still pictures accompanied by a range of sound effects. However, the most vivid of descriptions fail to do justice to this show. You simply have to see it for yourself.
