Director: Serge Denoncourt (Québec)
Serge Denoncourt is known as a true man of the theatre with more than eighty productions to his credit. Co-founder of Montreal’s Théâtre de l’Opsis in 1984, he has explored the great classics and the modern repertoire with equal interest. He breathed new life into the Théâtre du Trident in Quebec City as the company’s Artistic Director from 1994 to 1997. Steeped in theatre tradition and known for the visual beauty of his shows, which are typically marked by heightened imagery, vivid use of colour and a deep examination of subtext, Serge also stages operas and delves into the world of variety shows. Among his latest creations are the Serbian Roma show GRUBB, CRISS ANGEL’s Believe for the Cirque du Soleil, Beau Dommage’s musical Le Blues de la Métropole, Michel Tremblay’s Thérèse et Pierrette à l’Ecole des Saints-Anges and Fragments de Mensonges Inutiles, and Le Projet Andromaque at l’Espace GO.
