Ex Machina / Théâtre Sans Frontières
Directed By Robert Lepage

"It's mind-blowing, heart-breaking, hilarious and beautiful beyond words... Mandatory viewing."
—The Independent (UK)

Epic and global in scope, modern theater maestro Robert Lepage's marvelous, funny, and intensely moving Lipsynch pushes the boundaries of stage narrative, taking audiences on a riveting theatrical journey. Last at BAM with Geometry of Miracles (1999 Next Wave Festival), Lepage returns with nine individual tales woven into a spellbinding marathon experience that traverses decades and the world-from war-ravaged Vienna to pre-revolutionary Nicaragua to contemporary London-revealing the fascinating intricacies of human connection.

From the primal wail of a baby's first hours to the refined coloratura of a diva's aria, the human voice in all its manifestations serves as Lepage's thematic undercurrent, giving life to the characters' heartrending quests for verity in a world of vocal misfires.
