Mathilde is a theatre maker who considers the performing arts as a means of sharing, gathering and awakening.
Born and raised in France, Mathilde studied Theater Literature at the University of Artois. The same year, she was accepted into the Conservatory of Lille where she trained as an actress. There, she specialized in art forms including Mask, Devising, Improvisation, Clowning and Directing.
Enriched by these learnings, she performed a solo piece at festivals in France and Europe. Pushed by the urge to discover how theatre is practised in other cultures, she also attended international workshops and a one-month intensive training in Suzuki and Viewpoints training by SITI Company in Paris. In order to fulfil her research on the origins of theatre and to meet other cultures, she joined the Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) in 2015.
After graduating from ITI, Mathilde became a full-time drama and performance teacher for Centre Stage School of the Arts, where she continues to dedicate her time and energy sharing her passion, discovering new acting methods and developing her own approach to the art.
Mathilde became the artistic director of The Theatre Factory in 2019. Her works as director include: Art by Yasmina Reza (2018), Cuisine et Dépendances by Jean-Pierre Bacri and Agnes Jaoui (2019), Couple Ouvert à Deux Battants by Dario Fo (2019), and Hard Copy by Isabelle Sorente. She also performed in Du Vent dans les Branches de Sassafras by René Obaldia, Un temps de chien by Brigitte Buc and Hard Copy by Isabelle Sorente.
In 2022, Mathilde will be directing two new productions for The Theatre Factory.
