Many of the shows sold out, Le Pavillon restaurant required bookings, the space inside the giant concrete and brick structure was other-worldly.
There was the largest disco ball anywhere, art to fit the size of the venue, cleverly placed coloured lighting, plenty of volunteers, an impressive sound system, freight elevator service, lots of parking – it was altogether the coolest locale for a festival of theatre, dance and art in a downtown industrial neighbourhood.
What can I say? I loved it.
Thanks to photographer ROSS WINTER, who took these pictures. He has a fondness for Cosco shipping containers and industrial sites.
Farewell to the Hearn and LUMINATO until 2017.
