Since 1976, L’Arrière Scène offers numerous and diverse activities to initiate children to theatre. As a major specialized theatre centre, L’Arrière Scène is recognized for its High quality productions, its education workshops, its artistic residencies as well as for the daring theatre programming it presents each season at the Beloeil Cultural Centre to the children and teenagers of its local community.
As L’Arrière Scène’s cofounder and artistic director, Serge Marois has developed through the years a rigorous method mostly influenced by visual arts and contemporary dance, that emphasizes metaphor and dares to be poetic. Marois presents environments where many artistic vocabularies come together, combining images, music, movement and writing. The audience is thus invited to approach the universe with an open mind, involving each individual’s own emotions and cultivating his/her taste for the fine arts. Marois’s work has been presented in Canada and on the international scene.
