Émilie Monnet

At the intersection of theatre, performance and sound art, Émilie Monnet‘s practice is centred on themes of memory and transformation and is often produced through a collaborative process. Frequently involving knowledge keepers, the artistic processes rely on an approach characterized by being present, listening and caring for what surrounds us. Monnet is a writer, performer, and director, and her work takes the form of interdisciplinary theatre, performance installations and immersive sound experiences. She is both Algonquin and French and grew up in the Outaouais, Quebec and Brittany, France. Okinum is her first written play.
