Michel Lemieux – Victor Pilon: Dreamscapes | 30 Years of Innovative Performances
From May 1 to October 12, 2014
International Digital Arts Biennal
The Museum will present – as a principal partner – the 2014 International Digital Arts Biennial with the multidisciplinary company Lemieux & Pilon 4D Art. This retrospective exhibition, an immersive installation, will celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the company founded in Montreal in 1983. With over thirty original productions to its credit already, Lemieux Pilon 4D Art has breathed new life into performance art through a bold combination of theatre, film, dance, poetry, music, visual arts and sound to create original and captivating worlds that have been acclaimed wherever they perform. The company creates hybrid shows fusing reality and virtuality, the performing arts and new media. Their productions, which employ the technology of virtual projections, erase the boundaries between performance, set design, film, video, dance, poetry, visual arts, light, music and sound exploration, thus promoting the integration of these diverse forms of expression. After Robert Lepage in 2012, the Museum aims to extend the contacts it has made with the city’s cultural players, to become a partner rather than a competitor, so as to promote Montreal as a cultural metropolis by working with the principal organizations in this field.
These two artists are leading the charge of multidisciplinary creativity, a trademark of Montreal’s world-renowned theatre scene. Nathalie Bondil Director and Chief Curator, The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
