Statera – The 104th Island, an adventure created by cadabra
For immediate release
Montreal-based creative studio cadabra is proud to have collaborated with the tourism attraction of summer 2018, Statera – The 104th Island, a new kind of interactive experience to be presented at the Sorel-Tracy Ferry Wharf as of June 21, 2018. The cadabra team developed and produced the two-part multimedia adventure that features an interactive after-dark journey and a 360° projection on a translucent dome, which creates a luminous visual signature on the St. Lawrence River come nightfall.
Inspired by local history from a social and environmental perspective and developed over a two-year period with the help of multiple local contributors, Statera – the Latin word for “balance” – celebrates the precious harmony between the natural and industrial worlds of the Sorel-Tracy area. By bringing the 104th Sorel Island to life in an immersive and interactive way, cadabra invites the public to discover a magical universe that amazes, enlightens and resonates on a deeply emotional level.
We immersed ourselves in the multilayered history of the area to come up with an experience that rings true to the surrounding population but still evokes themes that are universally relatable. Statera is uniquely powerful and remarkable in its scope. It promises to blow away local audiences and visiting tourists alike.
