Interdisciplinary artist

Émilie Monnet

Last updated: February 7, 2024

At the crossroads of theatre, performance and media arts, Émilie Monnet’s work is most often presented in the form of interdisciplinary theatre or performative installations. Her artistic approach favors collaborative and multilingual creative processes, and explores the themes of identity, memory, history and transformation. A committed interdisciplinary artist, in 2011 she founded Onishka Productions in order to forge links between artists from different cultures and disciplines. Artist in Residence at the Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui from 2018 to 2021, she is now the artist in residence at Espace GO for the next three years.

Most recently, she presented her play Okinum at the Centaur Theater and at the National Arts Centre, and her new creation Marguerite: le feu will be produced next spring. Émilie is Algonquin/French and currently lives between the Outaouais and Tiohtià: ke / Mooniyaang / Montréal.
