Artist

Suzanne Lemoine

A performing artist since the 80’s, Suzanne Lemoine initiated the larger than life collective Les Secrétaires Percutantes gathering percussive actors squeezing burning djembes between their legs, jamming in all Montreal festivals and cabarets during the 90’s and early 2000. Actor on the theatre and movie scenes, she played the fucked up mom in Anaïs Barbeau-Lavallette’s first fiction film Le Ring; she also acted as the drunkard and murderess Josée in Le Neg’ by de the incomparable Robert Morin — and played the unforgettable character of Peste, in the mythic Cabaret Neiges Noires, on stage as well as on screen. She takes part of every vaudeville signed by Mrs. Nathalie Claude and in the yearly Le Boudoir by Miriam Ginestier; she performs a lot of beautiful characters in the theatre scene thanks to directors such as Martin Faucher, René-Richard Cyr, Yves Desgagnés, Estelle Clareton, Charlotte Laurier and Michel Bérubé in Les Quatre morts de Marie; ; Pop Corn; Comme en Alaska; Capharnaüm; Macbeth and in Ervart ou les derniers jours by Friedrich Nietzsche. Gill Champagne directs her in the solo play L’Arche de Noémie by Jasmine Dubé which toured in Québec and in Europe. She’s part of the bunch of gossipers of the musical Les Belles-Sœurs, by René-Richard Cyr and Daniel Bélanger, based on Michel Tremblay’s script and starting on stage on spring 2010.
