Alexis Martin’s list of accomplishments is impressive. A graduate of the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Montréal, he has appeared in more than 40 stage plays and several movies and TV series, including Les Boys, Beaux Malaises and Les Parent, and worked with such outstanding directors as Robert Lepage, Pierre Falardeau, Luc Picard and Denis Villeneuve. Co‑artistic director (with Daniel Brière) of Montreal’s Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental since 1999, this compelling and disciplined artist is the author most recently of the trilogy L’histoire révélée du Canada français, 1608 à 1998 (whose first instalment, Invention du chauffage central en Nouvelle-France, was presented at the NAC in 2012), Animaux, Sounjata, and EXTRAMOYEN, splendeur et misère de la classe moyenne.
