Les productions FUSION productions is built on boundless creativity. For founder Matt LeBlanc, every new business opportunity he takes on —whether it is a show, launching a charitable foundation, or teaching kids about art — how it will challenge him creatively is at the core of his thinking. If it isn’t challenging him, and he's not stepping out of the canvas, it’s not enough.
Les Productions FUSION productions are a blend of art, fashion, special effects, videos, story and performance, in a visually stunning presentation. It includes stunning handmade and hand-painted costumes and makeup, elaborate stage design, complex choreography, and a storyline that blends everything together into something big and bold. It also gives the opportunity for talented artists from different performance genres to be recognized and appreciated on the big stage. Shows often have a cast of over 60 young artists on stage and a crew of 15 working behind the scenes on the production.
Since the first show in 2011, visual artist and entrepreneur Matt LeBlanc has created and developed six sold out events in his hometown of Moncton. The first was an instant success with only 250 guests. FUSION now takes place in the biggest venue in Greater Moncton, with an audience of 1,200 people.
The FUSION team has worked tirelessly at building the Moncton production to where it is today. With over 30 key partners and suppliers from the business community, the concept is solid and ready for growth outside the region. So much work and investment goes into one production of FUSION, it was almost a crime that the show was only performed once to the public. With this idea in mind, the team took the show on the road to Caraquet in May of 2016. The sold out show of 500 people was a great success. In 2017, the FUSION concept will live in 3 permanent locations; Moncton, Caraquet and Fredericton.
There is also a philanthropic aspect to Les Production Fusion: every show supports local charities, with the help of silent and live auctions. This is an important part of the concept, as we feel that FUSION is very much a community production. LeBlanc also spends considerable time volunteering to teach art to kids in various schools. The students’ creations become an integral part of the next show. Since 2010, FUSION events have given over $150,000 to various charities and that number will continue to climb as the productions grow and expand to other markets.
