New immersive exhibition by OASIS immersion - transformé: a futuristic immersive journey inspired by true events
MONTREAL, Jan. 16, 2023 /CNW Telbec/ - As it prepares to enter its second year of operations, OASIS immersion, Canada's largest immersive destination, presents transformé, a fascinating voyage rooted in real-life stories from which emerges the infinite power of courage and empathy. This 80-minute luminous and interactive walkthrough exhibition spans eight works originally designed for virtual reality headsets, then reformatted for the show, sometimes reinvented OASIS-style, into a collective public experience. As of January 19 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, visitors will be able to embark on a futuristic, moving, and even transforming journey.
Staged for the first time worldwide, the exhibition plunges visitors into the heart of the human experience by addressing contemporary issues like mental health, compassion, inequality, diversity and wonder, taking them on a personal and transfixing ride of sights and sounds. In designing the exhibition, which stars Marion Cotillard and Emmanuel Schwartz, among others, the creative and technical teams of OASIS immersion worked alongside some of the biggest international names in virtual reality.

A SPECTACULAR VISUAL AND AURAL JOURNEY
transformé invites you to see the world through the eyes of various protagonists, rewarding visitors with an uplifting perspective on some of the issues very much alive today.
"The transformé exhibition sprang from a desire to explore the idea of converging individual-based virtual reality immersion with our own Oasis brand of collective immersion, for the purpose of building a narrative around shifting our perspective to others' point of view, so we may recognize how powerful a force courage and empathy are in our lives. More concretely, the transformé immersive walkthrough pr se tells compelling stories, layered over rich visuals and sounds and spectacular installations, which we believe speak to our times," explains Denys Lavigne, CEO and cofounder of OASIS immersion.
"Developing transformé was the fruit of a unique collaboration involving our creative and technical teams and a group of talented virtual reality artists. It was a painstaking process at the storytelling, technical and research levels through working with AI and creating the show's soundscape. I'd like to thank everyone for their commitment and openness to exploring digital creation in bold new ways. To a certain extent, this show is a tribute to their work and the transformative power of immersion," adds Julie Castonguay, Executive Producer at OASIS immersion.
The new immersive exhibition shepherds visitors through the venue's three galleries, each with its own set of deeply experiential and emotional narratives:
PORTAL GALLERY / THE CHALLENGES THAT HELP US GROW
On the Morning You Wake (To the End of the World)
TELEPORTER GALLERY / AT THE CROSSROADS OF PLACE
Tokyo Light Odyssey
PANORAMA GALLERY / A RENEWED OUTLOOK EMERGES
Notes on Blindness
