Jocelyn Bérubé

Jocelyn Bérubé has been a storyteller for more than 25 years. A graduate of the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Montréal (1968), he was a founding member of a theatre company dedicated to collective creation and improvisation, a company that would change the landscape of Quebec theatre: Le Grand Cirque Ordinaire (1969). His passion for storytelling and music developed into a career as a storyteller and violinist which, starting in 1972, led him to tour Quebec, Canada and even the United States, where he performed in high schools. On several occasions, he has been invited to France and Africa (Rwanda 1982, Ivory Coast 1998) to perform at festivals and special events. His talents as a storyteller and musician have also been captured on record, on Nil en Ville (1976) and La Bonne Aventure (1980). In 1994, he was awarded the bronze medal at the 2nd Jeux de la Francophonie in Paris in the “Stories and storytellers” category.
