Arts Centre Melbourne presents LIPSYNCH
Directed by Robert Lepage
Produced by Ex Machina (Canada) & Théâtre Sans Frontières (UK)
On a flight from Frankfurt to Montreal a nameless young woman dies, leaving behind a wailing baby. Immerse yourself in a hauntingly beautiful story with Robert Lepage's epic nine hour theatrical event. From the heartbreaking, poignant moment when a newborn is left homeless, you will be absorbed in the nine main characters' lives spanning seven decades.
Their 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.
Lepage is the master of the theatrical experience. 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 one of those rare opportunities to see a work by one of the world’s most remarkable and ambitious theatre creators – Robert Lepage and his company Ex Machina. Don't miss this memorable Melbourne theatre experience.
