The Andersen Project

Ex Machina / Robert Lepage

Andersen Project Play Clip

In this frequently comic masterpiece by theatre visionary Robert Lepage, Yves Jacques (The Far Side of the Moon) stars as a Canadian rock-‘n-roll writer who is unexpectedly commissioned by the Opéra Garnier in Paris to write a libretto for a children's opera. Arriving in Paris, he discovers that his living quarters are on the last floor of a building that is also home to a peep show in the city's red light district. Freely inspired by the timeless fables written by Hans Christian Andersen (who as it turns out, didn't really like children), as well as anecdotes from the author's personal diaries.

"...A theatrical conjurer, whose dazzling shows have captivated audiences around the world with their mixture of storytelling and stunning imagery.” —The Guardian, London on Robert Lepage
