FPS Magazine informs us about Norman, a new mixed-media stage production that combines the works of an animation legend with live performance. Created by 4D Art‘s Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, the show is based around the life and work of National Film Board of Canada director Norman McLaren. Performer/choreographer Peter Trosztmer leads the one-man show which combines interviews, visual and sound explorations, and live movement interacting with film.
The performance debuted last weekend in Ottawa and will be performed in the coming months in Canadian cities like Toronto and Montreal, as well as France. A video preview and performance schedule can be found at the 4D Art website.
This review from the Ottawa Citizen offers some interesting details about how the show is designed:
