Fantasmagorie is a multi-media conservation campaign combining live dance, film, music, and projection mapping set on the water at Chicago's Humboldt Park Lagoon. Conceived, directed and produced by Curmudgeon Group and co-produced by Chicago Park District, Fantasmagorie takes audiences on a journey from the Great Lakes watershed to the Coral Reefs and into the heart of the Amazon River Basin, meeting wildlife and discovering all that our planet's diverse habitat has to offer along the way.
In a benefit relationship with the World Wildlife Fund, Fantasmagorie raises awareness around conservation research initiatives in the Amazon for audiences throughout the Midwest.
