Simon Garez is a Saskatoon-based performer and actor who focuses on theatre and film. Raised by immigrant parents in Nipawin, his native language is French and he performs in both French and English. Simon hold a BFA in theatre performance from Simon Fraser University and a diploma in acting from the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts. Alongside his performance practice, he works with bees and honey production. Through beekeeping Simon has learned many values that have shaped his creative process: diligence, patience, extreme observation to details, and sensitivity to the environment. A central question he is currently researching in his performance practise is how to direct his own performances in both theatre and film.
