``COMING TOGETHER IS A BEGINNING,
STAYING TOGETHER IS PROGRESS,
AND WORKING TOGETHER IS SUCCESS.”
THE SHORT OF IT
Founded in 2000 by Bernard Duguay, Lucion designs immersive experiences for the entertainment industry, culture and public institutions. The team is composed of plastic artists, set designers, musicians, videographers, scriptwriters and interactive-media specialists.
Over the last 20 years, Lucion has succeeded in creating high artistic value content. The company has contributed to 400 productions in Canada and around the world, including light installations, architectural projections, mobile applications, stage productions, immersive environments for museums, as well as visual designs for television.
Since 2011 and the release of “Polar Spheres” in Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles, Lucion has gained international notoriety. The large spheres, housing shadow theatres became “moonGARDEN”, an installation that has since travelled around the world (Jerusalem, Moscow, Beijing, New Orleans, Lyon, Mexico, Medellin…) and to private events in Washington, Houston, Brussels and several other cities.
This expansion opened the door to new fields of expertise in logistics, coordinating large equipment from multiple countries and managing artists.
Lucion also put on a show at the Fête des Lumières In Lyon, most recently for “Quantum” in 2018, which took home the Numix award that year.
The team also worked with Moment Factory for “Living Connections”, Jacques-Cartier Bridge illumination project. We also produced the set design and interactive visual content for progressive rock band Dream Theatre’s world tour in 2016.
Recently, Lucion put its signature on the permanent “Eye on the Future” show for China-based Yong & Li.
The installation includes a 10-meter-tall 360 sphere video set up on an island in the city of Gu’an, near Beijing. The giant sphere was accompanied by 400 smaller lighted spheres, turning the park into a sort of enchanted garden.
We offer new ways of seeing the world.
Our goal is to do more than provide just ephemeral pleasure with doses of digital magic, we focus on the bigger picture. It is here that the complex connections with our world come to light and that the inherent forces between molecules, our thoughts and that connect us to our neighbours become apparent.
We are a group of communicators who aim to produce outstanding content within today’s versatile media ecosystem. With our projects, we seek to foment a more in-depth conversation about our lifestyle and to contribute to building a more sustainable world that is brighter and more connected.
We are always seeking new authors, artists, musicians and space designers to create new forms of storytelling and story-sharing in both natural and urban environments.

“THEY DIDN’T KNOW THAT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE, SO THEY DID IT”
WHAT SETS US APART
We believe in always going beyond what our customers have dreamed up. Our approach is to listen first and foremost - closely and attentively - to the needs and dreams of our clients.
WE JUST LOVE DIVERSITY.
Our projects are always a tasteful mix of multiple art forms, including theatre, cinema, multimedia, music, circus, etc. We never say no! And we always give prominence to collaborations that combine the best know-how and skill sets to allow us create ground-breaking installations and shows that touch the hearts of incredibly diverse audiences, from the most contemplative to the most active.
WE GET FULLY INVESTED IN THE PROJECTS THAT WE TAKE ON.
We stop at nothing! Our extensive experience built over years of collaboration and productions with international teams that have very different ways of working has afforded us an extraordinary level of adaptability.
WE SURROUND OURSELVES WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE.
Our team may appear small, but it is anything but. We have developed strong connections with 2D and 3D artists, scenic artists, composers, actors, directors of photography, plastic artists, technical directors and light designers. This collaboration of mind and spirit allows us to work side by side to build productions in harmony with one another, while drawing on the qualities and skills of all involved.
