Lepage and Manguel VR exhibition in Montreal: la bibliotèque, la nuit

This looks like a fascinating virtual reality collaboration between experimental theatre creator Robert Lepage and one of my favorite Borges scholars: Alberto Manguel. The name of the site-specific performance is la bibliotèque, la nuit / The Library at Night.  Visitors must book in advance and pay a very small fee before participating at the National Archives of Quebec. The exhibition is running from now until August 28, 2016. Here is a written description of The Library at Night event in English for those of you who thought the French trailer link above was some sort of bizarre smartphone advertisement.

    In the spirit of this post you should check out Johannes Cabal: the Necromancer. Dark and hillarious. It’s Faust and Dante running a circus for Satan that was designed by Lovecraft.

      Cool! I’ll add Cabal’s book to my list. Thanks for your thoughts, Carlos.
