From the Great Lakes to the Amazon, to the Reefs and beyond. We're aiming to educate, excite, conserve, and restore. #fantasmagorie
Fantasmagorie is a free, on-the-water media arts and conservation campaign set on the water of Lake Michigan for 90 days in the summer of 2015, taking audiences on a migratory journey from the shores of Lake Michigan to the Rivers of the Amazon and into the depths of the Coral Reefs.
Encompassing 22 live performances comprised of originally composed music, live choreography, and a 60-minute floating film, Fantasmagorie is a one of a kind performance driving environmental stewardship, cultural vibrancy, and free access to the arts for audiences and tourists of all ages.
Fantasmagorie supports the global conservation and research efforts of Chicago's John G. Shedd Aquarium and The Field Museum, strengthening the voice of endangered habitats and wildlife in and beyond the Great Lakes region by increasing audience participation in global marine and freshwater conservation through public and media arts.
We are proud to support our friends at the World Wildlife Fund as a beneficiary of Fantasmagorie, and encourage visitors and audience members to learn more about the efforts of WWF in preserving and protecting the natural world.
