Florent Siaud

Director Florent Siaud develops his work between Europe and Canada. Passionate about the theatrical writings of the 20th and 21st centuries, he stages fragmented texts in Montreal such as Don Juan revient de la guerre of von Horváth and Les Enivrés de Viripaev (Prospero), Toccate et fugue de Lepage (Center du Théâtre d'Aujourdhui), or Müller's Quartett, 4.48 Psychosis by Kane and Nina, is something else from Vinaver (La Chapelle). His attraction to sharpened writing led him to approach classics like La dispute de Marivaux (Studio Alfred-Laliberté), Les Trois sœurs de Tchekhov (Monument-National), Britannicus de Racine (TNM) and Hamlet (Théâtre Rouge).

At the opera, he stages Tombrède and Clorinde by Monteverdi, as well as Pelléas et Mélisande by Debussy (Bordeaux National Opera, taken on tour in Kanazawa and Tokyo in Japan), La tragédie de Carmen (by Bizet, Carrière, Constant et Brook) at the Théâtre Impérial in Compiègne, Les Bains macabres by Guillaume Connesson (Théâtre Impérial, Théâtre de l'Athénée Louis Jouvet in Paris).

Former student of the Theater section of the École normale supérieure de Lyon and Associate of Modern Letters, Florent Siaud is a doctor of theatrical studies in France and Quebec. He has been a playwright or assistant director in France, Austria, Germany, Sweden and Canada. Almost all of the shows produced by his company Les songes turbulents were finalists or winners of the Prix de la critique du Québec.
