Odile Gamache

Set designer

Biography

A graduate of the set and costume design program at the National Theatre School of Canada, Odile Gamache is today involved in both aspects of stage design. During her training, she designed the sets for the satirical comedy Les femmes de bonne humeur (stage dir. René-Daniel Dubois/Monument National), as well as the sets for the iconoclastic adaptation of Twelfth Night (stage dir. Jason Byrne/Monument National). Her Butoh dance costumes were seen in Les Aveugles and Unknown Body (stage dir. Jocelyne Montpetit/Jean-Brillant and Quat’Sous). Having designed the costumes for the loose adaptation of The Rite of Spring (stage dir. Félix-Antoine Boutin/Festival du Théâtre de rue de Lachine.), she has gone on to work as a designer for the emerging theatre company Créations dans la Chambre. As part of her residency at Usine C last January, she was involved in developing the concept for their upcoming collective work Orphée Karaoké, which will be presented next September. She is currently working on the design for another of the company’s productions, Koalas, scheduled for this fall at the Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui, and on designs for the play Elles Xxx (ByeBye Princesse collective/LaChapelle, April 2014). Since October, she has been leading the theatre production team at Collège Mont Saint-Louis.
