Montreal, September 17, 2018 – The co-executive directors of Festival TransAmériques, Martin Faucher and David Lavoie, are pleased to announce the appointment of Viviane Dohle as the festival’s production manager.

“Viviane Dohle joined the FTA in 2012 as assistant production manager, working first with Lucie Juneau and later with Louise Roussel. Her rigour, strong sense of commitment and her passion soon made her an invaluable ally of the Festival and its ambitious projects. Over the past six years Viviane has developed in-depth knowledge of Festival operations and the issues that the production team faces on a daily basis. It was thus a natural step to hand the reins of the department over to her following the departure of Louise Roussel in July, and we are very pleased that she has accepted the promotion.”

–  Martin Faucher and David Lavoie

“Working in production at the FTA means being a member of a devoted and talented team that gives shape to unique projects. Each one has its share of challenges, but I love to take up a challenge. I am very committed to providing artists with the best possible conditions for presenting their work. One of my priorities will thus be to maintain the exceptional quality of the welcome extended to artists, something for which the FTA is renowned.”

–  Viviane Dohle



After graduating from the Technical Production program at the National Theatre School of Canada in 2005, Viviane Dohle very soon began working for established companies on the Canadian theatre scene: the Segal Centre for Performing Arts, Repercussion Theatre, Neptune Theatre in Halifax, Theatre Calgary and the Centaur Theatre. A longtime Imago Theatre collaborator, she is frequently the production manager for the company’s shows. She has an M.A. in Management of Cultural Enterprises from HEC in Montreal. Her thesis was entitled: Directeur technique et directeur de production en théâtre – la pratique de gestion.
