The cheeky tenderness of a journey through memories, desires and dreams
Here he comes, alone on stage, facing us, confiding in each one of us. Moon is inside him, she guides him and she guides us through memories, up to the sky and back on earth. We feel the attraction provoked by this familiar star, we know the cosmonauts’ adventures, the Soviet-US rivalry. Every phrase awakens a whirlwind of images. Through his spellbinding words, French-Canadian Robert Lepage brings us at the heart of his cheeky tenderness, of his curiosity.
