Jean Marc Dalpé The tight and chiselled language of Jean Marc Dalpé allows those to speak who otherwise cannot. With simple words and powerful means, he breathes life into complex characters. His dramatic structures are relentless mechanisms born of the very texture of the universes he invents. In his theatre there is no judgment; only compassion.
Actor, poet and playwright, Jean-Marc Dalpé has twice been the recipient of a Governor General’s Award, for his plays Le Chien and Il n’y a que l’amour.
