Executive director and artistic codirector
Audrey began her training as an actor at the CÉGEP in St-Hyacinthe, which she completed at Université Laval’s theatre program.
Theatre for young audiences grew as a passion during the time she worked as usher and artist-facilitator at the Théâtre jeunesse Les Gros Becs. For Audrey, it was also the place of exploring the bond between art and young audiences, and of her first encounter with an audience of baby spectators.
Since 2009, she has focused her research on baby audience members, with an approach based on movement, imagery and sensory experience.
Audrey Marchand is cofounder of Les Incomplètes theatre company. She wears many hats in the company, depending on the project: actor, director, playwright, curator or artistic director.
As an actor, she has perfomed Edredon nearly 250 times in various countries since 2011. She also performs in Terrier, a young audience coproduction between Théâtre du Gros Mécano and Les Incomplètes.
As a director and playwright, she coauthored Edredon, EAUX and Les Matinées berçantes, as well as Les Incomplètes’ atypical projects and cultural action projects. She is also co-curator of three exhibitions (Sentiers, Dehors/Dedans and Dans ma maison) presented at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Finally, she contributed to the installation exhibit Les Berçantes (RectoVerso-2016, Axenéo7-2017).
