St-Aubin, Francois

Quebec-based costume designer who has worked continuously since graduating from the National Theatre School of Canada in 1984.

He has worked several times with image-driven director René Richard Cyr (En pièces détachées, Théâtre du Nouveau Monde/TNM, L'Éveil du Printemps, Théâtre de Quat'Sous, Apprentissage des Marais, Espace Go among others) as well as with Claude Poissant, providing magnificent costumes for the TNM production of Le Prince travesti. In 1998 he designed for the difficult Claude Gauvreau work, Les oranges sont vertes (TNM) and followed at the same theatre in March, 1999, with the Le Barbier de Seville by Beaumarchais (directed by Cyr and which won a Masque Award in February, 2000 for best costumes) and in October, 1999 with Normand Chaurette's Stabat Mater II (directed by Lorraine Pintal).

More recently, February 2000, he designed the premiere of Michel Marc Bouchard's Sous le regard des mouches (directed by the author, Compagnie Jean-Duceppe) and in April, 2001, Théâtre d'Aujourd'hui's world premiere of Dominic Champagne's La Caverne.

Paired with an unerring appreciation of period and character, Francois St-Aubin has an uncanny sense of what looks good on stage.
