Mark Lawes is the founding artistic director of Theatre Junction in Canada. Since 2005 Mark has been working as a director/author with an international company of artists. His live writing for the stage is created organically out of a friction between fragments of history, visual art, contemporary dance, music, and an alphabet of material coming from dramaturgical research. All of this is put in motion through a process of improvisation. Short works and experiments include Archeology and The Atlantis Project, and full-length works make up a trilogy including Little Red River (2008) and On the Side of the Road (2009) that toured to World Stage at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. The 3rd chapter of the trilogy, Lucy Lost Her Heart (2011) toured to Usine C in Montreal in 2012. Mark collaborates with choreographers and directors in opera, theatre and dance. In 2003 he lived in Paris where he worked on projects at l’opéra de Paris, at the théâtre de l’Athenée, at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, at la scène nationale d’Orléans, and at the Steirischerbst in Graz. Prior to establishing himself as a creator of contemporary performance, he has worked as an actor and director with a repertoire of classical and contemporary texts. Mark was the driving force and visionary behind the redevelopment, and design of the GRAND Theatre in Calgary. Theatre Junction GRAND is one of the leading contemporary theatres in Canada.
