David Paquet, Montreal, Porc-épic. (Dramaturges Éditeurs; distributed by Diffusion Dimedia)(ISBN 978-2-89637-007-8)
BiographyDavid Paquet wins a GG with his first play, Porc-épic. The play was performed for the first time by graduating students of the National Theatre School in 2007, directed by Frédéric Dubois. After being presented in Mexico and several European countries, it made an acclaimed appearance at L’Espace Go in Montreal in 2010, directed by Patrice Dubois. The same year, Paquet’s play for adolescents, 2 h 14 AM/FM, winner of the competition Le théâtre jeune public et la relève, was presented at Maison Théâtre, in a production directed by Claude Poissant. David Paquet is interested in stories, whether they are told through slam, storytelling or poetry. He is a graduate in playwriting from the National Theatre School of Canada, and lives in Montreal.
Jury's commentLightly, yet without losing any of its depth, Porc-épic describes an absurd universe where vulnerable people feel a burning desire to be guided by their intuition. They all aspire to change their lives. With his tragic characters playing out their roles in a surreal world, David Paquet has created a darkly comic and profoundly touching work.
