B: 1962 in Vancouver, British Columbia

Marie Clements is a playwright, actor, director, screenwriter and producer. During the 1980s she worked as a radio news reporter. Her plays include Age of Iron, Now look what you made me do, The Unnatural and Accidental Women which she also adapted into a screenplay, Urban Tattoo, Copper Thunderbird and the forthcoming new chamber opera Missing with music by Juno-winning composer Brian Current. Missing gives voice, in English and Gitxsan, to the story of Canada’s missing and murdered Indigenous women. Set in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and along the Highway of Tears, Missing is a poetic expression of loss and hope, its creation led by aboriginal theatre and opera artists. Missing is a production of the Pacific Opera Victoria in collaboration with City Opera Vancouver and is scheduled to be performed in November of 2017. The Road Forward began as an eight-minute live musical installation produced at the Vancouver Cultural Olympiad in 2010, which was developed into a full-length rock musical performed at the PuSh Festival in February 2015 and then formed the basis for a feature-length documentary in 2017.
