Les dimanches: first short snippets were posted on Facebook, then more intimate texts arose that one would never dare to post on Facebook, texts written a few years ago with sentences circulating around in the mind like earworms. It's Sunday, every day of the week. Sundays. The quietness of the streets, the silence that imposes itself between the walls, time stretching to boredom. Words, their meaning, their music too, are a great comfort. Life that suddenly takes a vertiginous turn.

Martin Faucher graduated from the École de théâtre de Saint-Hyacinthe in 1982. He has since actively contributed to our cultural life as an actor, director, professor and administrator in the performing arts community. Along the way, he has earned a reputation for adapting contemporary works for the stage, with close to 30 productions presented to date. Mr. Faucher has earned numerous distinctions dating back to À quelle heure on meurt ? based on texts by Réjean Ducharme, in 1988, and up to Antioche by Sarah Berthiaume, recently presented at the Théâtre Paris-Villette. The diversity of his projects speaks to his versatile stage practice, ranging from youth theatre to literary cabarets. He has served as artistic director and co-executive director of the FTA since 2014. His programming, like that of his predecessor Marie-Hélène Falcon, attests to an insatiable curiosity for the stages of the world, which he ceaselessly continues to visit.
