Trizart Alliance has been mandated by Ex Machina, Robert Lepage multidisciplinary company, to design the new multifunctional space, studios and specialized equipment for Le Diamant, a new building adjacent to Le Capitol de Québec, in the heart of the historic district of the city.

This new multifunctional space includes a flexible venue with a variable layout which can accommodate 650 to 1000 spectators as well as a creative studio. The venue will be able to host productions of all genres, from theatre to circus, to video installations, dance and even wrestling galas. The audience chamber has a theatrical grid system to allow versatile installation of equipment for all these types of events.
