5/28 Ex Machina presents The Andersen Project

Posted by novoscene on May 28, 2008

From now through June 1, Cal Performances host the newest work by acclaimed director and writer Robert Lapage and the Ex Machina theater company-

“Robert Lepage is one of Canada’s most renowned artists, ‘a theatrical conjurer, whose dazzling shows have captivated audiences around the world with their mixture of storytelling and stunning imagery’ (The Guardian, London).

In The Andersen Project, he continues to push artistic boundaries with a work freely inspired by two stories by Hans Christian Andersen (“The Dryad” and “The Shadow”) as well as anecdotes drawn from the famed Danish author’s Parisian travels. This spellbinding solo piece draws on some of Lepage’s favorite themes: the confrontation of past and present, of Romanticism and modernism, and of recognized and underground art forms. In this fascinating piece, Lepage also explores more personal territories in questions about sexual identity, unfulfilled fantasies, and the thirst for recognition and fame that are drawn from Andersen’s life and writings.”

Wednesday May 28, 8pm (Various times through June 1)
