Director and Designer

Catherine Bourgeois

With her company Joe Jack and John, which she co-founded in 2003, Catherine Bourgeois shakes up the local theatre scene with playful and engaging shows featuring inclusive casts: some of the actors live with a disability or represent visible minorities. She first studied set design in Sainte-Thérèse and at UQAM, then flew to London, where she discovered collaborative directing. She came home with a desire to invent innovative forms of theatre where each performer contributes their unique creative imprint to the work. Her recent directing credits include Just Fake It (2011), AVALe (2014), and je ne veux pas marcher seul (2015).
