Marie Brassard studied at the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Québec, and for many years her artistic endeavours were closely linked with Robert Lepage, with whom she created the legendary Dragons’ Trilogy. She has lived in Montreal since 1987. From Jimmy, créature de rêve to Peepshow and The Invisible, her shows captivate audiences through a distinctive aesthetic that uses new technologies to push theatre to its utmost limits. Acclaimed in Canada and around the world, her practice rejects directives as to how things should be done and opens the door to infinite possibilities.
Her more recent directing work include Éclipse (2020) based on the work of poets women from the Beat generation, La vie utile by Evelyne de la Chenelière (2018) and La fureur de ce que je pense (2013) inspired by Nelly Arcan's work.
