French and Francophone Studies Lecture - Bernard Salva

Bernard Salva, an actor, director and teacher, will present “Celebrating a World Theatre: From L’Odyssée to Persepolis on the Stage of Campus Saint Jean-University of Alberta." 

Théâtre à l' Ouest, the student company of Campus Saint Jean, is without a doubt the most multicultural theatre group in Edmonton, Canada. Directed by the travelling actor, director and teacher, Bernard Salva, Theatre à l' Ouest is dedicated to exploring playwrights and stories of the world. In this talk, Bernard Salva will be discussing the new francophone canadian mosaic, especially in the west, that has been the inspiration for new theatre practices in recent productions that he has directed, including Dalia, une odyssée by M. Salva, and an adaptation of the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.

Bernard Salva is the founder and artistic director of Théâtre à Grimône in France, and Teaching Professor of Dramatic Arts and Scene Writing at the francophone campus of the University of Alberta, le Campus Saint Jean in Edmonton.
