What happens when your mother disappears suddenly?

Marc-André Charette (top)
...is particularly interested in exploring the place of movement and voice in theatre. Since his first professional production in 1996 in Le rêve totalitaire de Dieu l’Amibe (Théâtre La Catapulte), he’s participated in over fifty projects at La Nouvelle Scène, Théâtre de l'Île and across the country. He had the pleasure of inaugurating the opening of la Nouvelle Scène in 1998 in the production Jacques Brel, toujours vivant (Compagnie Vox Théâtre) and its reopening in 2016 with #PigeonsAffamés (Théâtre du Trillium). His sensitive interpretation of Momo for Anne-Marie White's Écume (Théâtre du Trillium) presented across Canada was particularly noted and got him a nomination for the Prix Rideau Awards. He was able to live his passion for dance in Turbulences with Lana Morton (Ottawa Dance Directive) and The Ghomeshi Effect (Gladstone Theatre).
...graduated from the University of Ottawa’s theatre program and later attended various workshops in both Canada and France. She is mostly known for her work with the French theatre companies of Ontario such as Théâtre la Tangente (Americandream.ca), Théâtre Rouge Écarlate (Pour l’hiver), Théâtre la Catapulte and Théâtre français de Toronto (Les Médecins de Molière, La Meute). Anie has also starred in a number of television series. She received a Gémeaux Award for her work on Motel Monstre, a children’s series where she played Kimi the not-so-friendly-ghost. Last year, she was given the opportunity to play in English for the first time in the The Last Wife (GCTC and Belfry Theatre) where she portrayed Mary, daughter of Henry VIII. This is the first time she speaks her own words on stage.
FM: If your show was a meal, what would it be?
Anie & Marc-André: "Bouillabaisse. It's warm, comforting and a variety of scary, but tasty looking things are floating at the surface. Plus, my mom always hated fish."
