Quebec-based director and cofounder of Pigeons International. She was born in Portugal.

She was educated at Concordia University and the Université de Québec à Montréal before founding the company to explore multidisciplinary theatre via masterpieces of the modern and classical repertory.

She has directed most of the company's works including Perdu dans les coquelicots/Lost in the Poppies, Savage/Love, Cruising Paradise and The Making of de Macbeth. Les Bachantes, appeared in the 1999 Festival de Théâtre des Amériques.

Her style is marked by a special attention to movement/dance and a playfully intelligent approach to dramatic text.

She lives in Montreal with her partner, actor/director and Pigeons co-founder Paul-Antoine Taillefer, and their daughter.

Mme de Vasconcelos now spends more time with work that is more purely dance.
