Paul Cegys’ work merges multiple practices of performance creation and design, from theatre and opera to site-specific installation and intermedial VR/MR scenographies. He has worked abroad in the United States, India, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Poland and Lithuania, and for such companies as La Monnaie/De Munt (Royal Belgian Opera), Canadian Opera Company, CanStage, Soulpepper Theatre Company, Opera Hamilton, and Theatre Aquarius.

He currently serves as the Digital Curator for the Canadian Student and Emerging Artists Exhibit for PQ19 and is the Co-Curator and Workgroup Leader for the 36Qº installation project as part of PQ19.
