Synopsis

Icarus is a VR project by Lemieux Pilon 4D Art and Normal Studio and directed by Michel Lemieux. Freely inspired by the infamous character from Greek mythology, it is an immersive experience that literally wraps us in the skin of Icarus, the young man who burns his wings by flying too close to the sun. We move through his memories of the places and events from his childhood, privy to conversations with his father, Daedalus, leading up to his famous ascent and tragic downfall. This creation is based on the 2014 multidisciplinary stage play of the same name (also known as “Icare” in French) created by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon.
