Angelo Barsetti

Quebec City, Québec, 1957
  • Artist (makeup)


Originally trained as a visual artist, Angelo Barsetti quickly became a well-known make-up artist in the dance and theatre worlds. He has worked closely with inspired and inspiring directors such as André Brassard, René-Richard Cyr, Claude Poissant, Eric Jean, Brigitte Haentjens, Denis Marleau and Wajdi Mouawad. He has also been a faithful collaborator with the choreographers Sylvain Emard, Danièle Desnoyers and Louise Bédard for almost 20 years. His make-up work has helped reveal the essence and the intensity of an impressive number of characters stemming from Québecois drama and dance. He has also taught the art of stage make-up to the acting students at the National Theatre School of Canada. Presently, he is devoting more and more of his energy to photography.
