Catherine Lalonde Massecar

Catherine Lalonde Massecar has been working in the field of interdisciplinary arts for some fifteen years, as an artist-researcher and instigator of projects involving material and immaterial forms in the real world. Her proposals oscillate between collaborative artist/community creations in Montreal's Centre-Sud district (where she founded Péristyle Nomade) and experimental and infiltration projects in multiform locations (solo and with Duo Massecar-d'Orion). She holds a Master's degree in theater from UQAM, with a thesis on artistic infiltration and the fragmentation of dramaturgy in urban territory (2011). She is currently completing a doctorate in arts studies and practice (2024), focusing on the Opéra-Manœuvre to explore the paradoxical and unpredictable encounter between artistic maneuvering and the concept of opera, in order to amplify the relationship to the world.
