Mascouche native Naomi Fontaine is a graduate of the set and costume design program at the National Theatre School of Canada.
As part of her training, she explored set design in the adaptation of Oreste (stage dir. Mathieu Larrivée, NTS Studio) and delved into the world of Quebec storytelling with her design of the sets and costumes for Minuit (stage dir. Gill Champagne, Studio du Monument Nationale). She then journeyed through time with her imaginative costumes for the play You Can Do Whatever You Want (stage dir. Emma Tibaldo, Studio du Monument Nationale).
Since the summer of 2012, she has worked as an artistic director promoting French-language slam poetry, along with artist Emmanuel Hyppolite.
The public got a look at her more playful side at the National Theatre School of Canada’s open house, during the Journées de la culture (2013).
Through set design, she is hoping to learn multiple facets of the performing arts, while sharing her passion for the art form.
