Lucie Bazzo has been designing lighting for theatre and dance for more than 20 years. She began her career with director Robert Lepage with La Trilogie des dragons and Plaques tectoniques for which she won the Critics Prize. During her career, she has collaborated with numerous choreographers including Jean-Pierre Perreault, Danièle Desnoyers, Ginette Laurin, Lynda Gaudreau and Crystal Pite. In 1999, Lucie opened the Agora de la danse season with her personal project Luminosités Variables. She also participated in Espaces Dynamiques II.
Lucie has recently re-established her work in theatre by designing numerous creations such as L'Inoublié, Le Rire de la mer, Les Reines, Visage Retrouvé, Couche avec moi, C’est l’hiver, My Name is JeanPaul, and Sonate d’Automne. Lucie has also created lighting for art exhibitions including the Mangas at the Bibliothèque and Archives nationales du Québec, and John W. Waterhouse at the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal.
Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ)
In 2008-2009, in partnership with Québec's Ministry of Culture and Communications and the Ministry of International Relations and the Francophonie, and on the recommendation of Arts Council England, Conseil des arts et des lettres (CALQ) approached Acme to establish the Québec Studio in London, thereby expanding the network of residencies offered abroad to Québec artists and writers. The residency provides two six month long residencies per year in Bow, E3 for artists who have at least 10 years' experience of professional practice. Applications and selection are undertaken directly by CALQ.
