McLarena at IN Light IN Festival

by Pierre

We recently came back from Indianapolis, where we were invited by our friends at Northern Lights.mn to show McLarena as part of IN Light IN, the city’s very own light festival held from August 26th to 27th.

Two years after its original presentation in Montreal, we were looking forward to being able to bring the collective Canon experience back to life, this time to our neighbors in the US!

Despite the Midwest’s capricious weather (ie. tornado warning, thunderstorms and heavy rain up to 30 minutes prior to the opening) the event was a big success and brought thousands of visitors to the city’s Cultural Trail and gorgeous Central Canal area.

Over two nights, more than 160 people contributed their best moves to reproduce collectively the original Canon choreography.

Here is a little best of:

Psst: We invite those of you dear readers who might have missed it to check out this two-part behind the scenes story about the project.

Many thanks to all the people who made this possible: Joanna Nixon & all the IN Light IN team, Steve Dietz & Northern Lights.mn, Quartier des Spectacles, NFB, CREOS.
