Biography

Michèle Motard is a versatile artist, whose talent as a singer is recognized as much for her skills singing traditional music as for contemporary music. From 2002 to 2005, she was a member of L’Ensemble de musique médiévale Anonymus (Anonymus Medieval Music Ensemble), and performed extensively with the group in Quebec, Canada and France. During the same period, she sang in the play Les Trois Soeurs (The Three Sisters) by Chekhov, directed by Wajdi Mouawad, a production that was performed at the Trident in Quebec City, at the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde in Montreal as well as in many cities in France. In her more recent performances she has worked with l’Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal (Montreal Contemporary Ensemble), in Microphone Songs by Michel Gonneville and in the creation of Pesma by Ana Sokolovic in its original production. Also, since 2006, with the ensemble Enfants Terribles, she has created a performance-opera by Jimmie LeBlanc, the works of many young composers, and has sung Le Pierrot Lunaire by Schoenberg with theatrical and vocal ease. In the fall of 2009, she created the major role of ‘Feintise’ for Chants Libres, in the world premiere of L’eau qui danse, la pomme qui chante et l’oiseau qui dit la vérité by Gilles Tremblay, and in 2010, she will be reprising her role in Les Trois Soeurs by Chekhov in Moscow. Since 2005, she has also participated in the composition and singing of many film scores.
