A graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada’s production program, Michel LEMIEUX has been amazing audiences with the originality and scope of his creative output for over three decades. By 1984, an entire generation of artists in Quebec and around the globe had been impacted by his multidisciplinary show, Solide Salad. Creator, set designer, director, composer, performer and videographer, he continues to be at the forefront of the performing arts. With the production company Lemieux Pilon 4D Art, founded in 1990, he and Victor Pilon devise singular shows in which new technologies intensify the audience’s sensory and emotional experience. Their collaboration has yielded Dreamscapes, La Belle et la Bête, The Tempest and NORMAN, to name a few. Michel also created The Disappearance of Lady Macbeth, a digital installation opening the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibition for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He recently completed ICARUS, a mixed reality VR experience that was presented at the Cannes XR Festival last spring as part of the Tribeca Film Festival selection. Michel also co-created TORUK—The First Flight (for Cirque du Soleil) and Continuum at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium in Montreal. Lastly, he co-created Cité Mémoire, an urban multimedia experience sprawling across Old Montreal and the downtown area.
