Last updated: July 24, 2017

Director, playwright, actor and teacher Marc‑André Charron trained in physical theatre at Montreal’s École de mime Omnibus. He pursued his studies at the École internationale de théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, and went on to become the first Franco-Canadian graduate of the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA) in London, U.K. Favouring new works with a sense of poetry, urgency and connection, he has worked notably with Le Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental, Théâtre Témoin (England/USA), DynamO Théâtre (Montreal) and the Théâtre populaire d’Acadie, and has participated in creative residencies at the Théâtre populaire d’Acadie and Place des Arts, among others. He is co-artistic director (with Mathieu Chouinard) of Satellite Théâtre (Montreal), and co-created Mouving and Bouffe, both of which won the Éloize for Best Production of the Year (2012 and 2014 respectively). He wrote Les Trois Mousquetaires Plomberie, presented at Zones Théâtrales 2015, and is directing Comme un seul Grům at ZT 2017.

Since 2009, he has formed a close connection to Acadia through regular collaborations with artists and organizations in that part of the country. For the past three years he has represented the theatre sector at the Association acadienne des artistes professionnels du Nouveau-Brunswick, and is currently a lecturer at the University of Moncton. In July 2016, he moved his family and his work to Moncton, where he is pursuing his theatre career. He is a proud Neo-Acadian.
