Pascale St-Onge

If many consider writing as her first language, Pascale St-Onge wishes to clarify this: it is speaking up as a gesture that interests her. Her approach is constantly in motion, torn between her writing practice and her desire for performativity and interdisciplinarity. If the stage is the space for the present to unfold, and the text systematically disappears when the performance begins, what is the significance of the author’s body on stage and how can it dialogue with the methods of performance art? Neither theater nor stand-up, she seeks a form that belongs to her, within which she can create a horizontal relationship with the public. Currently inhabited by a desire to explore the slowness and ethics of care, Pascal also continues her reflections on resilience, a recurring theme in her works of fiction.
