Written, designed, directed, and performed by Robert Lepage

Revered for his expansive theatrical imagination, Canadian director, actor, and playwright Robert Lepage focuses his latest work down to the most intimate scale—a one-man show steeped in his own childhood memories. In this "touching, intimate, powerful" (The Guardian, London) performance, Lepage's commanding presence is amplified by the technical wizardry of his production company, Ex Machina. The production employs everything from archival film footage to shadow puppetry to dollhouse-like miniatures of entire city blocks—creating an elaborately shifting psychological landscape that connects personal history to broader questions of collective memory.

Performed in English and French with English supertitles.
