Les Winnipegois préfèrent célébrer qu’hiverner. Comme les Voyageurs de la traite des fourrures, on affronte toutes les conditions météorologiques des prairies. Comme la Compagnie du Nord-Ouest, notre devise est “Persévérance”. Quand les rivières gèlent, on range les canots et on sort les raquettes de neige. On n’a pas peur du froid, ni des tempêtes de neige. On embrasse l’hiver et profite à 100% de ce que cette belle saison peut offrir.

Le Festi-Bar est un bar de glace temporaire construit sur la Rivière Assiniboine au quai historique à La Fourche. Le bar est opéré par le Festival du Voyageur et est situé au le Pavilion Sub-Zero, une installation temporaire de La Fourche.

À propos du Pavilion Sub-Zero

Texte seulement disponible en anglais

Pavilion Sub-Zero features a shimmering, colourful cloud floating above performers and audience members in The Forks Historic Port, the heart of the Red River Mutual Trail. With feature performances by invited artist Terje Isungset and members of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Pavilion Sub-Zero celebrates ephemeral qualities of the frozen river scape, through live performances, and the opportunity be together.

A tensile structure supports “the cloud” of screens that animate the entire space with colours and varying levels of luminance creating an infinite array of patterns on the ground. Loosely based on the traditional star blanket, the cables will define the space in which visitors can enjoy a variety of performances and even perhaps enjoying a beverage from the adjoining venue for the Festival du Voyageur.

Continuing in the tradition of collaborating with artists from around the world, this year’s pavilion will feature and ice bar and sculptures created by renowned ice architect Luca Roncoroni, as well as performances for the opening night of Winnipeg New Music Festival by Terje Isungset who will perform on instruments made from Red River ice. The ice sculpture gallery and bar will be protected from the damaging rays of bright Manitoba sunshine by the cloud floating above.

The project is being developed by Sputnik Architecture with students and faculty at the University of Manitoba Faculty of Architecture.
