Ontario Place Toronto

Ambitious new arts festival coming to Ontario Place

Ontario Place, as many of us remember it, is nothing but a shell. Sure, we may go to concerts at the Amphitheatre and Echo Beach, but we're barred from entering the rest of this nostalgic amusement park.

But that'll change this September as local groups Art Spin and Small World Music Festival get ready to launch in/FUTURE, which they're billing as a transformative art experience.

From September 15 to 25, in/FUTURE will host more than 40 contemporary artists who'll create a slew of both indoor and outdoor installations. The Cinesphere will also be up and running and it'll show a series of new films and videos as well as IMAX movies from Ontario Place's archive.

Along with dance and theatrical performances, the Small World Music Festival will curate a music series featuring local and international artists

"Art is not only what you experience, it's also about where and how you experience it," says in/FUTURE co足-artistic director Rui Pimenta in a news release. "This special venue, so rich in nostalgic value for so many of us, is ready once again to create new memories for those that visit in/FUTURE."
