Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris
Combining theatre and the visual arts, La Belle et la Bête – the new show created and directed by Quebec artists Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon – reinterprets the Jean Cocteau classic to immerse us in a world where the imaginary flirts with the real. The duo is assisted by a team that takes care of the lighting, makeup, video and virtual reality.
With texts by Pierre-Yves Lemieux, La Belle et la Bête has found in Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon wonderful storytellers for today. The real and the virtual join forces to cloud our vision and open the gates to dreams for us.
