★★★★★ ~ THE GUARDIAN, THE INDEPENDENT, EVENING STANDARD EX MACHINA ROBERT LEPAGE AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE 887 One of the world’s greatest theatremakers turns his eye to the most difficult subject of all: himself. Theatre is the “grand sport of remembering,” says Robert Lepage. This dazzling investigation of memory—how it makes and unmakes us—transports us into the echoing chambers of his own recollected past. Beginning in his childhood home at 887 Avenue Murray in Quebec City and ricocheting across decades, Lepage’s own tale proves inseparable from the dramatic events of the half century in which it plays out. Universally acclaimed for the scale of his theatrical imagination—and on stage in Melbourne for the first time—Lepage proves once again a master of the grand image, while channeling his most intensely personal story yet. Duration 2 hrs, no interval ROBERT LEPAGE IN CONVERSATION WITH RICHARD WATTS Join Richard and Robert for an in-depth conversation about autobiography, his theatrical practice and his view on the wider world.
