Cirque du SoleilTodo comenzó en Baie-Saint-Paul, un pequeño pueblo cerca de Quebec (Canadá). Allí, a comienzos de la década de los ochenta, un grupo de personajes llenos de color deambulaban por las calles subidos en zancas, haciendo malabares, bailando, lanzando fuego por la boca y tocando música. Se trataba de Les Échassiers de Baie-Saint-Paul (los zancudos de Baie-Saint-Paul), un grupo de teatro callejero fundado por Gilles Ste-Croix. Los habitantes del pueblo quedaron impresionados por los jóvenes artistas y, entre ellos, se encontraba Guy Laliberté, que posteriormente fundaría y se convertiría en director general del Cirque du Soleil.
Matthieu Larivée came up with the ingenious lighting designs for several shows and artistic events in Quebec and throughout Canada. His multidimensional approach and overall vision of the show has allowed him to participate in large-scale projects such as the show Le Petit Roy, directed by Serge Postigo, and Beladi - A night at the Pyramids, a unique show featuring singer Chantal Chamandy and the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, performed in front of the Egyptian pyramids, which allowed Matthieu to emphasize the beauty of such majestic monuments. This international project earned him the MELDA (Middle East Lighting Design Awards) Award in 2007 and recognition from his peers at the 2008 Parnelli Awards in Las Vegas. At the 2010 Gala de l'ADISQ, Matthieu was nominated as “Lighting Designer of the Year” for MusicMan, starring Gregory Charles, and again in 2011 for Roch Voisine’s Americana. Matthieu never hesitates to push the boundaries of his art, incorporating video technology and scenic effects into his projects. For over ten years now, Matthieu Larivée and his Lüz Studio team have been responsible for the visual look of numerous concerts and events, including Canadian Music Week (2010 and 2011), Guy Laliberté’s Poetic Social Mission (an event that took place in 2009 during his eleven-day journey into space on board the International Space Station), the Concerts OSM éclatés, as well as the graphic design for the opening night of the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix in 2010. Matthieu has also worked with famous artists such as pianist Michel Legrand and singer Natasha St-Pier. Amaluna marks Matthieu's second time taking part in a Cirque du Soleil show after Wintuk.
