Eakin Lecture delivered by Professor Karen Fricker--The Theatre of Attractions: How Robert Lepage makes movies onstage
McGill Faculty Club (3450 McTavish)
'Cinematic' is a term that is frequently used to describe the stage work of Québec theatrical auteur (and sometime filmmaker) Robert Lepage - but what does this actually mean? This presentation explores Lepage's theatremaking, arguing that filmic techniques - in particular, montage - are at the core of how he constructs stage stories. Inviting audiences to read his productions as they would films is a key means through which Lepage creates a theatre that evokes the experience of living in our globalized world.
