Director and Playwright

Steve Gagnon

Last updated: October 25, 2017

Steve Gagnon’s theatre, like the man himself, is luminous and passionate. A graduate of the Conservatoire d’art dramatique du Québec, this accomplished playwright, actor and director—equally at ease with Camus and Ibsen, Réjean Ducharme and Claude Gauvreau—writes, performs and directs with focused intensity. From La montagne rouge (Sang) to Fendre les lacs by way of En dessous de vos corps je trouverai ce qui est immense et qui ne s’arrête pas, his plays stand out for their undercurrent of anger and powerful ensemble work. He is also the author of an essay entitled Je serai un territoire fier et tu déposeras tes meubles : réflexions et espoirs pour l’homme du 21e siècle (“I will be a proud territory and you will drop off your furniture: thoughts and hopes for the 21st‑century man”).
