Second Phase of the St-Denis revitalization project, the Studio-cabaret is a new concept in flexible performance spaces. Indeed, with its walls, proscenium and balcony nosing covered in LED video tiles, performances are  elevated for patrons with the addition of immersive video content throughout.

In addition to these millions of pixels, Trizart designed, provided bid specifications and supervised the installation of a new high quality broadcast infrastructure covering the complex, a motorized rigging grid system with controls, refreshed stage masking and new video and house sound for all spaces including the lobby and the Marie-Louise on the upper floor.

Finally, as part of its theatre planning mandate, Trizart contributed by integrating multiple rigging points for circus across the studio-cabaret and the lobby, added catwalks on stage and in the audience chamber and designed the new seating configuration layouts on the new tiers.
