One of Quebec's most active and versatile set designers, Guillaume Lord has created sets for theatre, variety, and opera (most recently Dialogues des carmélites at Opéra de Montréal), both locally and abroad. He has also dived into the circus world, creating sets for Cirque Du Soleil and Cirque éloize.
Besides working with such renowned directors as Lorraine Pintal, Claude Poissant, André Brassard, and Serge Denoncourt, he has explored the dance scene with choreographers Shann Hounsell, Ginette Laurin, Marie Chouinard, and Jean Grand-Maître; designed sets for television talk shows and art exhibitions; worked as an art director on feature films and documentaries; and created the sets for the equestrian show Odysséo by Cavalia.
Other recent credits include Roméo et Juliette and Les Trois Mousquetaires (Théâtre du Nouveau Monde); Cavalia II, Production Voltige; and Love Lies Bleeding, Alberta Ballet.
The set design also achieves a lot with very little: a double layer of high, black prison bars, frequently shifted to create a varied sense of space and confinement, are augmented by a few props, such as a bathtub and a big white balloon. Dramatic lighting and projections do the rest in a cohesive, uncomplicated production directed by Serge Denoncourt.
