OUR PRODUCTION - in development
WRITTEN BY DIANE CORMIER VÉZINA
Bago, a country row, where several people died. Charone and Nero, who once lived in this row, will return there, to meet the last person who witnessed all these deaths. Looking for the culprit, they bring back these dead to the country of the living.
Bago is a play for adults with two characters that deals with the themes of death and the resilience of rural communities in Quebec in the face of urbanization. A raven, a bird of premonition, marks the time of the play in addition to a score of characters that we do not see but about whom we speak.
Diane Cormier Vézina
ACTRESS & STAGE DIRECTOR
Originally from Saguenay, Diane Cormier Vézina was introduced to theater at the Conservatoire de Chicoutimi and continued her training as an actress and teacher in Montreal. In 1994, she founded a drama theater school with a program of four years of study. With her students, she created the Finally Winter Group, where she became artistic director of an intimate room with 60 spectators. In her theater, she helps generate words that pay tribute to the people of our region, to the people here.
Thanks to her passion for writing, creation and adaptation, she will present texts including: Tales of the uncertain country and the English Tales of Jacques Ferron, La folie comme de raison, taken from the book of the Collectif Solidarité-Psychiatrie, and her own creations, Hier, La porte and Les Invulnérables.
While teaching, she continued her profession as an actress, in 1995, she won the auditions of the Quat'Sous, under the watchful eye of René Richard Cyr, which earned her to be noticed by the members of the Théâtre Prospéro, for which she played successively in the decomposed theater or the dustbin man by Matéï Visniec, in a production by Claude Lemieux, and in The demons, by Dostoïevski, under the direction of Téo Spychalski.
From 1999, she was asked to become a member of the Théâtre Prospéro, but instead chose to create her own theater. She will play there: Mathilde by Véronique Olmi, in 2009-2010; The banquet of little people or the politeness of despair by Michel Garneau, in 2013 and, Jean and Béatrice by Carole Fréchette, in 2012-2014. All of these plays were presented at the Théâtre Parenthèse and produced by the Group Enfin l'Hiver. Currently, she is busy creating her next original piece: Bago, which she wants to present to us in 2022.
