Born and based in Montreal, Lydie Dubuisson is a theatre creator, playwright, director, and storyteller. She performed in musicals, sang in choirs, directed choirs, sang in a jazz band and graduated with distinction in Theatre from Concordia University.
Her art explores intersectionality, dystopian reality, collective memory, and ritualistic moods. Gospel music permeates her work. Dubuisson’s plays give voice to women living in conservative communities by questioning destiny within fundamentalist environments.
Her play Quiet had a staged reading for the Black Theatre Workshop’s 2018 Discovery Series. She is part of the writing team of Blackout, a Tableau d’Hôte production, which will be presented in January 2019. Dubuisson is currently writing her second play, Sanctuary.
