excerpt from Dreamscapes by Lemieux Pilon 4D Art

Dreamscapes, the exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is extended until October 12th!

The immersive multimedia installation is composed of the virtual sets and characters sourced from five stage productions created by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon over the past thirty years. Visitors are immersed in a space defined by giant projections on the walls of the Contemporary Art Square and on a series of screens, which serve as virtual doors and form a labyrinth both thematically and spatially.

Peter Trosztmer, dancer

Norman, receives yet again, critical acclaim!

"Anyone interested in the possibility of projection in live performance has to see this show before it closes (for the last time)."

Chad Dembski, The Charlebois Post-Canada

"We were as dreamers, entranced by the multimedia web deftly spun for us by Lemieux and Pilon. Norman works both as a spectacular introduction for the general public and a treat for those already in the know. I highly recommend the piece to people of most ages. On the whole, it’s a true feast for the senses."

Lisa Vlasova, Montreal Rampage

"NORMAN is a rare mix of intimacy and special effects; it’s real and surreal" This bilingual and funny show is hyper-modern."

Crystal Chan. Nightlife
