FLASH is a two day winter event in Moncton created by the promoters of Festival Inspire to brighten the darkest days and nights of the year. For this second edition on the 15th and 16th of February 2019, festival patrons will enjoy a series of installations and performances created with light, 3D projection, and technology in and on selected locations in Downtown Moncton.
Events are designed to waken a city that usually falls asleep for a few months in winter, and to offer an experience never seen in Atlantic Canada.
Over the weekend, the public is invited to follow a route to both ephemeral and permanent installations throughout downtown both inside and out - including a couple highly iconic or secret Moncton buildings.
Artists from across the Atlantic have been invited to perform immersive performances based on light, three-dimensional video projections and new technologies in the festival’s first year.
Parts of the weekend are free of charge and accessible to everyone. Day and weekend passes will give festival goers access to all shows, venues, and visual experiences.
This type of event is rarely seen outside of big capital cities. We hope to reach a high level of media arts with FLASH in the winter. We didn’t want to copy Nuit blanche or Nocturne Halifax and just hop on the bandwagon. The creation of Flash is something specifically designed for OUR CITY and we hope you will enjoy this rendez-vous on the East Coast.
Programming will be unveiled very soon!
