Milena Buziak

Artist without borders

Stage director and artistic director of the company Voyageurs Immobiles, Milena Buziak is interested in cultural diversity and the internal and geographical borders that separate us. She studied at Concordia University, then at UQAM. In 2013, she created Grains de sable, a documentary play based on interviews with soldiers. For young audiences, that same year she directed her first Cremer, La femme corbeau, then Estelle Savasta’s Traversée (presented at the NAC in 2017), for which she worked with a deaf actress for the first time. With Le cheval de bleu, Milena wanted to deepen her investigation of the relationship between hearing and hearing-impaired actors.
