From 1985 to 2000, Marie Brassard’s career was closely linked to that of Robert Lepage, both in theater and in film. In 2001, she created her first solo work, Jimmy, créature de rêve, presented at the Festival de théâtre des Amériques.
The play’s strong success inspired her to launch a solo career and establish her own production company, Infrarouge, of which she is artistic director. Since then, she has written, directed, and performed the following works: La noirceur (2003), Peepshow (2005), The Glass Eye (2007), L’invisible (2008), and Moi qui me parle à moi-même dans le futur (2010). In these plays, Marie continued to experiment with technology, exploring the uses of sound and light, and her particular approach has made her stand out as a singular voice in contemporary theater.
Since then, in collaboration with guest artists from different disciplines and origins, the artist
has created surrealist pieces with virtuoso acting skills and innovative video, light, and sound installations. Her unique work, performed both in English and French, received widespread acclaim in many cities across America, Europe, and Australia. She is the artistic director of both production companies Infrarouge and Ultraviolet.
