LANGUAGE:English, French, German and Spanish. With surtitles
On a flight from Frankfurt to Montreal a nameless young woman dies, leaving behind a wailing baby. And so begins the epic panorama linking nine lives and spanning seven decades. The surprising, humorous and emotional stories about the search for identity are overlaid with the human voice in all its forms delivering a rich narrative that spans across generations.
As audiences follow the main characters’ journeys they are treated to moving performances, exquisite operatic arias and extraordinary staging in a production spanning from war-torn Vienna to pre-revolutionary Nicaragua and contemporary London.
Presented over nine hours and performed in four languages, this is an unmissable production by one of the world’s most remarkable and ambitious theatre creators – Robert Lepage and his company Ex Machina, co-produced with Théâtre Sans Frontières.
Last performed at Arts Centre Melbourne, Australia, 4, 5, 11 & 12 August 2012.
