Jeremy Cabrera - 2020
Laurent has always believed that telling a story can change the world. Graduate of Dawson College's Professional Theatre program and Concordia University's Playwriting program, Laurent had the chance to develop his craft as a bilingual actor, writer, teacher and artist. He has had the opportunity to work with such companies as Centaur Theatre, LAB 87, Youtheatre, La Licorne, Geordie Theatre, Playwrights Workshop Montreal, la Fille du Laitier and Théâtre Prospero. Laurent has written, performed and produced several plays including A Perfect Picture, about the infamous war photographer Kevin Carter that captured the world's attention with one haunting picture. The show was nominated for Best Solo at the 2016 Montreal Fringe and received critical acclaim at the Centaur Theatre’s Wildside Festival.
In 2019, he returned to the Centaur in five shows! Little Charming, Balconville, Urban Tales, What Rough Beast and in Morris Panych’s bilingual world premiere of The Shoplifters. In 2018, his first short film, The Scene, was in the top three finalists of the Montreal ACTRA Short Film Festival. He has also performed in multiple projects in French, including his first professional translation, Petit Charmant, produced by Théâtre Uiviit in Nunavut, and roles on television in District 31, En Tout Cas and Ricardo Trogi’s new show, La Maison Bleue.
You can also see him in a pivotal part of the hilarious final season of Future Man on Hulu (available on iTunes if you’re not in the USA). Last year, he was honored to be nominated for Best Actor and Best Director for The Scene in the YES! Let’s Make A Movie Film Festival.
