ROSEAUX by 1ToMn LANDS IN DOWNTOWN BRAMPTON!

ROSEAUX by 1ToMn LANDS IN DOWNTOWN BRAMPTON!

BRAMPTON, ON (January 25, 2023) The businesses of Downtown Brampton, together with the City of Brampton, are excited to announce that after a year’s absence from Canada, Roseaux by 1ToMn will land in Garden Square, downtown Brampton from January 24 – February 23, 2023.

Playful, larger-than-life reeds

Moving has never been so fun as with Roseaux, a “participactive” and interactive installation. Composed of six massive reeds that rise into the sky, Roseaux invites the public to activate the base of the reeds by stepping on sensors, rhythmically propelling myriad colours up the stem. This starts a fun and exciting race to the top, punctuated by a vibrant soundscape in a perfect synchrony of light and sound to create an energizing sensory experience. 

This family-friendly installation encourages the community to visit downtown Brampton and can put the finishing touch on an afternoon of free skating in Gage Park, supporting local businesses and visiting the neighbourhood art galleries. 

“On behalf of the Downtown Brampton businesses, the Downtown Brampton BIA is very excited to co-present Roseaux with the City of Brampton! We invite everyone to come downtown to experience Roseaux, have some family fun as well as get in some shopping and dining in Downtown Brampton.” -Suzy Godefroy, Executive Director, Downtown Brampton BIA

“The City of Brampton’s Performing Arts Division is proud to co-present Roseaux by 1ToMn with the DBBIA! We encourage Bramptonians to come visit downtown and enjoy the spectacular Roseaux presentation of light and sound in Garden Square. Bring your family and friends to experience this playfully interactive art display!” -Mayor Patrick Brown 

This presentation of Roseaux is funded by the Downtown Brampton BIA, The City of Brampton and Canada Healthy Communities Initiative.

Creation and artistic direction: 1ToMn

Light and sound design: UDO Design and Serge Maheu

Interactive control system design: Serge Maheu
