300 Sparks St.

***Changes to opening hours on Saturday, September 9: Due to a planned power outage by Brookfield Property Partners in the area where the event takes place, opening hours for Kontinuum will be from 8 p.m. until midnight, exceptionally on Saturday, September 9.


Created and produced by the Ottawa 2017 Bureau and Moment Factory, and based on an original concept by Ottawa 2017, this impressive world-first underground multimedia production, powered by Bell, takes place in the Lyon Station of the yet to be opened Light Rail Transit (LRT) system.

The story premise for Kontinuum: An Underground Journey Through Time is that a crevice in the fabric of reality was discovered during excavation of the LRT tunnel. Since this discovery, inexplicable electromagnetic waves have been appearing in and around the tunnel, captivating the imagination of passersby. It is an immersive, dynamic and moving experience, using the full 500-metre length of the station, where participants will be exposed to the hidden frequencies of the material world.

Ottawa 2017 thanks its lead partner CIBC, premier partner Bell, the Government of Ontario ( #ontario150) and the Government of Canada ( #canada150) for their contributions in helping to deliver twelve full months of bold events, immersive experiences and all-out celebrations.
