Mani Soleymanlou

A 2008 graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, Mani Soleymanlou has lived in Paris, Toronto and Ottawa and is currently based in Montreal, where over the past 10 years he has worked with such acclaimed directors as Alice Ronfard (Les pieds des anges), Claude Poissant (Rouge gueuleThe Dragonfly of Chicoutimi), Serge Denoncourt (Projet Andromaque, Les trois mousquetaires), Olivier Kemeid (Furieux et désespérés), Denis Bernard (Ce moment-là), Eric Jean (Variations sur un temps) and Brigitte Haentjens (L’opéra de quat’sous).

In 2011 he founded his own company, Orange Noyée. His distinctive artistic practice investigates notions of community identity (Un/OneDeux/TwoTrois/Three) and social relationships (Ils étaient quatre, Cinq à sept, 8). He continued down this path more recently with Neuf [working title] and Zéro presented in Montreal and Ottawa last year, as well as throughout various artistic collaborations over time:  Lapin blanc, Lapin rouge, Les Lettres arabes II, Le Wild West Show, À te regarder, ils s’habitueront and Prologue(s).
