Théâtre Niveau Parking

Repertory company in Quebec City, Quebec, founded in 1986 by a group of graduates from the Conservatoire d'art dramatique de Québec. In 1987 the original group invited Marie Brassard, Lorraine Coté and Michel Nadeau to join, and Michel Nadeau became the Artistic Director. After several years, the musician Robert Caux replaced Marie Brassard. In 1999, several other company members left for other projects, and new members joined to form the third troupe: Michel Nadeau (Artistic Director), Marie-Josée Bastien, Lorraine Coté, Hugues Grenette, and Véronika Makdissi-Warren. Since 2016, Marie-Josée Bastien is Artistic Director.

Productions are presented at the Théâtre Périscope.

The Company considers itself a hybrid, presenting a baroque amalgam of music, humour and social and metaphysical preoccupations. It rejoices in the fact that you never know what to expect in a Niveau Parking production. Company members are actors and creators, working together as a troupe. Most of the productions are new works.

Among its productions are Un sofa dans le jardin, 1988 (the extinction of species as seen by an adolescent through the genealogy of his own family); Terminus (a study of the psychic predicament of modern humanity); BUREAUtopsie, 1993 (an examination of self-perception through the lives of four bureaucrats trapped in an office); Jeanne et les anges, 1993 (a girl's search for identity through photographs which the company revived, in association with Compagnie Jean-Duceppe, in 1998); and Lentement la beauté, an absurdist contemporary revisitation of Chekhov's Three Sisters.
