Life and career

Victor Pilon Lemieux Pilon 4D Art the blog About Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon

After a two-year stay in Europe, Victor Pilon enrolled in visual arts at the University of Ottawa. In 1983, after receiving his bachelor's degree with a specialization in photography, he moved to Montreal. With Michel Lemieux, he founded the company Lemieux Pilon 4D Art in 1990. Since then, they have worked together to create a plethora of multimedia productions, including La Belle et la Bête (2011), NORMAN (2007), La Tempête (2005) and Anima (2002), all of which have toured internationally.

In 2003, Pilon and Lemieux did the visual design for the T.V. show The Planets, based on the music of Gustav Holst, presented on both the French and English networks of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). They also created many large-scale events such as Harmony 2000, a show created to celebrate the beginning of the new millennium, and Soleil de Minuit, the closing performance of Montreal International Jazz Festival 2004 (MIJF), commemorating, respectively, the 20th and 25th anniversaries of Cirque du Soleil and the MIJF. They were also behind Cirque du Soleil's DELIRIUM. With over fifty artists onstage, this multimedia production revisited the music of Cirque du Soleil's past productions. In 2008, they directed Starmania, the famous show by Luc Plamondon and Michel Berger. It was the first time this musical was produced as an opera.
