Champ Libre is pleased to announce the event Sous La Passerelle! A novel and original outdoors event of electronic art.

As of 7:30 PM the street will become the site of a popular celebration open to the city and the world. Three evenings of electronic art and performances will take place on Lalonde Avenue on the 22, 23 and 24 of August, 1996.

A part of the urban fabric, Lalonde Avenue will be completely painted in blue and transformed into a pedestrian street. There will be a stage, Phenomenon Sculptures by Pascale Dufaux and several video monitors, all under the cover of vast white screens lit up by a whirling dance of…electrons.

Champ Libre will present a program of 22 video works from Quebec and around the world. A premiere of the special Windows on Manhattan, a selection from the last edition of the New York Video Festival, will be presented during the event.
The Quebecois artist Geneviève Letarte will present her performance "Oh toi qui vit là bas", a hypnotic interactive prose piece that combines voice, music and image.
Finally, the Association pour la Recherche Électroacoustique du Québec (ACREQ) will present the finale of its 5th international competition - Electrovideoclip.
Each evening, dance, circus art and cabaret performance-shows will usher in the parties that will extent the celebration of the electronic arts well into the night.
Admission is free and open to all. Free access to the Usine C café.

Sous la Passerelle! Is presented in collaboration with Usine C and ACREQ.
