Mini Bio (1)

In 1969, with other actors, she refused her diploma from the Ecole nationale du theatre in protest against the institution and for the creative improvisation by the actors.

With Pierre Curzi, Gilbert Sicotte and others she formed `le Grand cirque ordinaire', a theatre company devoted to improvisation. On the screen, she plays in some 'Denis Arcand' movies such as Réjeanne Padovani (1973) and for 'Anne Claire Poirier' before directing her first short in 1975 Anastasie oh ma cherie. But it is La cuisine rouge in 1979 about the revolt of women against their macho friend in a party which is seen as a stepping stone for "women in cinema". She went back to acting for Léa Pool and Claude Jutra, directing only one feature, a TV movie in 1991. Her next big screen release came in 1993: Le sexe des étoiles (1993) on the relation between a daughter and a father who had a sex change.
