Marilou Craft

Marilou Craft was born and currently lives in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyaang/Montréal and often conceals the in-between. She creates at the confluence of literature and the performing arts and strives to explore the gray areas between the intimate and the political. Her short-form texts have appeared in the journals Mœbius and Liberté and can also be found in collections published by Les Éditions Triptyque (Troubles, nos ombres, 2023; Pauvreté, 2021; Corps, 2018), La Mèche (Cartographies II: Couronne Nord, 2017), and Les Éditions de Ta Mère (Des nouvelles nouvelles de Ta Mère, 2016). Other pieces remain unpublished, shared only on stage or on-air, alone or accompanied by improvised music. Her practice also involves collaborations with artists such as author Chloé Savoie-Bernard (À la racine, 2019; Repousses, 2019) and multi-instrumentalist Elyze Venne-Deshaies (Veiller le souffle, 2020). In addition, she is a translator, dramaturg, and member of the editorial board of the poetry magazine Estuaire.
