New collaboration with the Cirque du Soleil based on the movie Avatar

Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil and Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron announced a new partnership to develop an arena-touring show inspired by the world of Cameron’s history-making motion picture, AVATAR. This “live experience” is expected to debut late 2015 for what will become a global touring schedule.

Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon will be directing it.

It's the second collaboration between Lemieux Pilon 4D Art and Cirque du Soleil: Delirium, Cirque du Soleil’s first-ever live arena event, was created by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon in 2006 who also serve as the scenic and multimedia designers of this spectacular production.

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."
