  • Duration: 120'
  • Location : Salle de la Grande Main

Robert Lepage deepened, through the invention of theatrical forms, his relationship between the intimate and the world. Here, his memories of childhood and adolescence echo the history of Quebec in the 1960s, torn between nationalism and federalism. We will sneak through the mazes of his memory where he jostling tasty anecdotes about his neighbors at 887 Murray Avenue, the news of the time and his discovery of the theater. He will expose us to the pangs of the actor who must remember his text, his past and the historical and social reality which he inherits and in which he is inscribed. Incredible storyteller, illusionist and puppeteer at the same time, Robert Lepage is surrounded by a veritable anthill behind the scenes and dazzles us by his crazy ingenious finds. A stroll in memory, where his own touches on ours.
