Isabelle Payant
Artistic and General Director

Since 1998, Isabelle Payant has been working as an actress. Following her training at the Collège Lionel-Groulx she stumbled upon the world of puppetery and its infinite possibilities. Over the course of six years she worked with Le Théâtre de L’Oeil on La Félicité/Dear Fizzy, Un secret de Polichinelle and Le Jardin de Babel, touring across Canada and the USA. She was recently seen performing in Woânda from the Théâtre à l’Envers.

As an actress, she has travelled around Quebec with the Théâtre Parminou. In 2000, her work was recognized in L’honnête Fille at the Théâtre Denise-Pelletier in Montreal. Her voice work can be heard on the radio and on screen as a female voice in several movies and shows including translations of Once upon a time in Mexico, The Descent and After the Sunset.

Wishing to pursue projects of her own, she created in 2007 Le Théâtre des Petites Âmes which she directs with Stéphane Guy.
