Director Biography - Marilyne Lamontagne

Marilyne Lamontagne, a unique voice in the industry, is a queer writer, director, and producer hailing from rural Quebec. With an academic background in theatre and performance arts from UQAM in Montreal, Marilyne's studies focused on the intriguing intersections of physicality, performance, and sexuality.

Fueled by a profound desire to challenge the limits of our perceptions, Marilyne finds inspiration in crafting narratives that exist "5 degrees to the left of reality." This distinctive approach generates a sense of unease, engendered by our distorted perceptions. Her work, imbued with themes revolving around body performativity, complex identities, and emancipation, reflect her background and profound curiosity. These recurring elements underpin her unconventional and thought-provoking storytelling style.

Marilyne brings a decade of diverse experience to the table, having excelled as an executive, producer, writer, and director. Her impressive portfolio includes serving as a dramaturg for the play "Kink" (Montreal, 2018), producer for "The Deep" Season 4 (2022), "Ladybug and Cat Noir: The Movie" (2023), and "Everything Else" (2023). Most recently, she took the helm as director for "Heirloom" (2023).
