Serge Denoncourt

With more than 80 productions to his credit, Serge Denoncourt delves enthusiastically and with great intelligence into both classic and contemporary works, revealing their multiple layers, their mechanics, their dramatic motivations, their ethical conflicts. Skilfully interweaving myriad theatrical conventions, his shows are solidly rooted architectural works that yield multiple reflections of our world. A notoriously adept director of actors, he has brought many of Michel Marc Bouchard’s plays to the stage. At the Théâtre de l’Opsis, which focuses on reinterpreting classics of the international repertoire as well as works by contemporary foreign authors, he has orchestrated three plays in the “Chekhov Cycle”: his own creation, Je suis une mouette (non ce n’est pas ça), based on Chekhov’s The Seagull; La cerisaie (The Cherry Orchard); and Oncle (Vania) (Uncle [Vanya]), a reworking by UK playwright Howard Barker.
