Biography

Originally from Montreal, Mr. Larivée first studied violin and trained as a ballet dancer, only to realize that his passion resided off stage. He then studied set and costume design at the National Theatre School of Canada. 

After completing his Master’s degree in Scenography at Central Saint Martins in London, under the direction of Pamela Howard, he started his career in New York as an assistant designer to Michael Levine and Paul Steinberg.

 

He later moved to Toronto, where he is now based, designing for theatre, opera, and dance, across Canada and abroad. His work has been seen on the stages of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, the Stratford Festival, the Royal Alexandra Theatre, the Canadian Opera Company, the National Ballet of Canada, the Young Centre for the Performing Arts and Tarragon Theatre in Toronto; The Segal Centre for the Performing Arts and Imago Theatre in Montreal; the Royal Sweedish Ballet in Stockholm; Teatro Nacional de Cuba in Havana; the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; New York’s Lincoln Centre; the Opera National du Rhin and Opera National de Lorraine in France; Opera Zuid in the Netherlands and the Nuremberg Staatstheater.

 

Five-time nominee, he received a Dora Mavor Moore Award for outstanding set design in 2017. He was invited to be a guest teacher at the National Theatre School of Canada for the fall semester of that same year.

About the Theatre

 

Mr. Henslowe  - Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. 

                            The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on  

                            the road to imminent disaster.

Mr. Feenyman -  So what do we do?

Mr. Henslowe  -  Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.

Mr. Fennyman - How?

Mr. Henslowe  - I don't know. It's a mystery.
