Thanks to several collaborations, Maryse Goudreau has crossed paths with poets, photographers, filmmakers, etc., and has been involved in the creation of several new works. Collaborative works become joint acts of generosity, in order to carry a story that requires more voices to tell itself.



Presented in summer 2021 and 2022 at the Wharf in Carleton-sur-mer, at the Biennale d'art In Situ in Barachois and at the Festival TransAmérique on the Quai de l'Horloge wharf. La conquête du beluga will be in Ottawa on September 15 and 16, 2023, for the 10th biennial Zones Théâtrales at Canada's National Arts Centre. Presented at sunset, with Parliament Hill as a backdrop, this gently protesting ecological work calls for a change in the way we look at the living. Produced by Théâtre à tour de rôle, the performances will take place on the banks of the Ottawa River, on the site of the Canadian Museum of History. Author Maryse Goudreau transforms the words of MPs into an innovative, biting and passionate theatrical object. Philippe Cyr staged the reading in 2021, with Johanne Haberlin taking over in 2022.


Sharing a passion for cetaceans, Safia Nolin (music) and Maryse Goudreau (multidisciplinary arts) have created a DIY ode to the living, during residencies at the Bleu Bleu festival in summer 2021 and at La Serre - art vivant in 2022. Taking the form of a series of musical tableaux, Feu de forêt (FOREST FIRES) draws on the naive aesthetics of Grade 6 shows and church hall parties to re-sacralize nature. Accompanied by Mica Guitard and two other ever-changing collaborators, Safia and Maryse invite us to a DIY apocalypse with Feu de forêt.
