It’s safe to say that Montreal is a bit of a ghost town these days.
With indoor dining and most other activities banned due to COVID-19 restrictions, the dead of winter feels especially… well, dead.
Fortunately, there are still a handful of cool things to keep you entertained in town. OASIS, an immersive light exhibition in the heart of the city, is one of them.

Installed inside the Palais des Congrès, RECHARGE/Relax is a stunning new digital world that aims to re-energize visitors to OASIS Immersion, Canada’s largest immersive indoor attraction.
RECHARGER/Unwind is an immersive experience made up of 10 works by some of the most prominent digital artists in Quebec (and the world). It offers a stimulating and soothing sensory experience that aims, you guessed it, to rejuvenate you.
“RECHARGER/Unwind is above all a sensory stroll that will do you good” says Denys Lavigne, CEO, Executive Creative Director and Co-Founder of OASIS Immersion. “The programming includes original works as well as works adapted to the optimal conditions of the place to present highly immersive experiences.
The digital space includes simulated ecosystems, the science of sublimation and flowery poetry, technology merging with organic matter, acidic fractals and a tribute to the e-movement of the tides – we told you, c is trippy.
The RECHARGER/Unwind walkthrough revolves around three states of being:
- RELAXED: This first immersive room plunges visitors into a sensory territory focused on relaxation and letting go.
- STIMULATE: The purpose of this room is stimulation through an energizing light and sound experience!
- RECONNECTED: This is the largest of the OASIS immersion rooms. It constitutes the cornerstone of the experience to which the exhibition aspires. It offers visitors, immersed in relaxation and disconnected from the outside world, the uplifting experience of reconnecting with themselves, nature and social interaction.
The entire exhibit takes around 75 minutes to complete, with departures available every 20 minutes, beginning at 10:20am.
Ticket prices vary from $19 at $25, and all COVID-19 protocols will be followed.
