Magali Lemèle

An artist with an unquenchable thirst for discovery, Magali is constantly seeking to reinvent her practice, be it through artistic projects and challenges, or taking part in professional development opportunities (Jamais Lu, FTA, ENTC, Banff Art Centre, Méduse). In 2013, she received the Ontario Ministry of Culture Creation Award and was named Radio-Canada’s Personality of the Week. She co-directed and appeared in Je n’y suis plus at the NAC French Theatre, Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario and Salle Fred-Barry; her performance earned her the 2013 Rideau Award for Best Performance by a Female Actor and the 2013 Avant-Première Culturiades’ Performing Arts Award. Magali has directed over twenty plays, most recently Confidences trop intimes (TÎ), Silence en coulisses (assistant-TÎ), Vie et mort d’un char boiteux (CIV), Mambo Italiano (TÎ) and Jack (TNO). She charmed audiences as Martine in Michel-Marc Bouchard’s Les Muses Orphelines, presented at the Théâtre de l’Île in 2018. She is also a cast member of Théâtre la Tangente’s AmericanDream.ca, which has been touring since 2015 and was recently presented in its 4-hour version at the NAC French Theatre in April 2019. Montreal audiences will have the opportunity to discover her staging of Jack (TNO) at the Théâtre La Licorne (Mtl) in December 2019. She’ll also star in Théâtre de la Vieille 17’s next production, Un conte de l’apocalypse, presented in January 2020. Lastly, she is currently putting the finishing touches on her first play, Dans le bleu, which will be presented at the NAC French Theater, the Théâtre de l’Île and the TNO in April 2020.
