Lemieux Pilon 4D Art
Created and directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon
Created and written by Pierre Yves Lemieux
“…a stunner, pouring forth one unforgettable three-dimensional image after another.”
—The Boston Globe

In this ravishing retelling of Beauty and the Beast from acclaimed creators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, actors interact seamlessly with breathtaking projected imagery to resurrect the darkness and sensuality of the original French fairy tale. A ghostlike horse charges through a tangled forest of thorns, a mirror breaks in an explosion of virtual glass, and a phantom moves in for his disembodied kiss, transforming an ageless story into a mercurial dream world charged with eroticism.

Translated by Maureen Labonté
Original score by Michel Smith
Set, costume, and prop design by Anne-Séguin Poirier
Visual design by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon with Mathieu St-Arnaud
Lighting design by Alain Lortie

Produced in collaboration with the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde (Montreal, Canada). Co-commissioned by LUMINATO, Toronto Festival of Arts creativity and Espace Jean Legendre, Scène nationale de l’Oise en préfiguration
