Nadia Drouin appointed interim Executive Director of En Piste
The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Nadia Drouin as Interim Executive Director of En Piste.
Nadia Drouin has been working with the organization since 2021, first as Project Manager for Destination cirque, and then as Director of Services and Community Relations. Graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, she worked at the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD) and at Espace GO and directed her own company, Théâtre Pluriel, with Michel Laprise, before discovering the world of Quebec contemporary circus arts and street performance. Nadia was part of the staff at TOHU between 2004 and 2018, as Coordinator of Professional Services, and later as Head of Circus Arts Programming. While with TOHU, she created the International Market for Contemporary Circus (known by the French acronym MICC) in 2015. In 2018, she held the position of Director of the CINARS Biennial. Her extensive expertise in circus arts dissemination led her to join En Piste, where she built and ran Destination Cirque, a program dedicated to the development of circus dissemination throughout Quebec.
Her knowledge of circus arts, her leadership, and her organizational and communication skills are some of the many assets that will help steer En Piste forward.
