Véronique Bertrand has over 15 years experience in set design for the performing arts. She has conceived of and executed the set design for numerous major theatrical productions.

 

After graduating from Saint-Hyacinthe Cegep’s Theatre School in 1998, she completed her training in Europe with renowned stage designer Rudy Sabougnhi. She has worked in several operas and theatres in France, including the Opera de Lyon.

 

In 2003 she worked as a set and costume designer for several Quebec theatre directors, including Téo Spychalski (BlackBird), Hélène Langevin (The Studio and Bedtime!), Alison Darcy (Othello), and Michel Lefebvre (In this World, Pencil Project).

 

2011 brought the designer back to live in her native region of Quebec City. From then on, she took her place in the theatre world and collaborated with directors Olivier Normand (Le Songe d’une nuit d’été, Où tu vas quand tu dors en marchant), Flip Fabrique (Crépuscule), Keith Kouna (Le voyage d’hiver), Martin Genest (Lapin Lapin), and Marie-Hélène Gendreau (Les marches du pouvoir).

 

She has also designed in the greater Montreal region, notably at the Montreal Biodome for the Hommage à la lenteur exhibition and at the upcoming Théâtre du Nouveau Monde.

 

Véronique’s artistic work surprises audiences with its originality and bold concepts. Each project she works on is enhanced by her richly detailed designs.

 

The Quebec Association of Theater Critics (AQCT) named Véronique Bertrand as finalist in the category ‘Best Set Designer’ for the 2016-2017 Critics’ Prize for Le Songe d’une nuit d’été presented at the Trident Theater.
