Aura is among Moment Factory’s most ambitious and creative illumination projects to date. This 45-minute immersive sound, light and video projection-mapping experience is staged in Montreal’s landmark Notre-Dame Basilica.
When James O’Donnell began his plan of the Notre-Dame Basilica in 1824, he envisioned a magnificent sacred space filled with rich colours and gilded details. The Irish-American architect’s Gothic Revival cathedral is defined by soaring lines and towering spires designed to lift visitors’ hearts and voices into communion with the divine. Almost two hundred years later, these aspirations continue to infuse the Moment Factory team’s approach.
The Notre-Dame Basilica, among Montréal’s famous landmarks, is a visually pleasing symphony of paintings, gilded sculptures and stained-glass windows. Built in 1829, the cathedral is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and is one of the most recognizable church buildings in the world.
