Immersive King Tut: Magic Journey to the Light

Toronto-based Lighthouse Immersive, in partnership with UEG, IFFDA and under the auspices of the Egyptian Council for Tourism Affairs presents IMMERSIVE KING TUT: MAGIC JOURNEY TO THE LIGHT. The exhibit opens to the public on August 10th at the Lighthouse Artscape at 1 Yonge St. and is being launched to commemorate the 100th anniversary of archeologist Howard Carter’s discovery of the tomb of the legendary “boy king” in November 1922.

This all-new experience uses stunning visuals to tell the story of the Amduat, an important ancient Egyptian funerary text, thought to be the oldest known illustrated story in human history, that was depicted on the tombs of pharaohs. State-of-the-art video mapping and ground-breaking animation bring to life the story of King Tut’s passage into the afterlife as he escorts the sun through the underworld each night to rise again victoriously each morning. Mexico City-based Cocolab created the fantastical animations integrating breathtaking images acquired by UEG and IFFDA through their 30-year history of presenting spectacular touring exhibitions including those honouring King Tut and ancient Egyptian civilization.

Tickets begin at $24.98 and are available online now at https://immersive-kingtut.com/toronto/.
