Matthew Jocelyn, Artistic & General Director

Originally from Toronto and later based in France, Jocelyn is an internationally acclaimed producer and director of theatre, dance and opera as well as arts administrator and educator. He was the Artistic and General Director of the Atelier du Rhin in Alsace, France for 10 years. Under his leadership, he was responsible for establishing the organization as a major centre for theatre, opera and contemporary dance - the only multi-disciplinary artistic centre of its kind in France. In addition to his administrative and financial roles, he directed a number of productions at the Atelier du Rhin. As a result of his accomplishments, he was named Chevalier des Art et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters), by the French Ministry of Culture in July 2008, one of the country's most prestigious arts honours.

His professional credits also include: founding Théâtre de l'Autre Rive and Théâtre Des-Hérités in Paris; directing theatre, dance and opera in Europe's most revered venues; guest director at Canada's Stratford Shakespeare Festival where he received critical acclaim for the direction of Pierre Corneille's The Liar (Le menteur) in 2006; developing and directing original plays, operas and translations in Canada, Switzerland, France, Germany and Brussels; and teaching at the University of Toronto, the American University of Paris, the Université de Toulouse-le Mirail and the Conservatoire National Supérieure d'Art Dramatique in Paris.  He was appointed Artistic & General Director of Canadian Stage in February 2009.
