Lipsynch
On from 06 Sep 2008 till 14 Sep 2008
Barbican
by Robert Lepage


About: Lipsynch

This latest ensemble work from Robert Lepage and Ex Machina is an epic panorama linking nine lives spanning seven decades, and spinning stories that are surprising, funny and moving.

As we are taken on a nine-hour journey, we stop off between war-torn Vienna, pre-revolutionary Nicaragua and present day London, encountering people who have lost the power of speech and people for whom speech is the only lifeline.

A dubbing studio to the world of vocal forensics, Lipsynch follows a cluster of interwoven destinies, where each voice is searching for its own identity.

In English, French, German and Spanish with English surtitles.

Directed by Robert Lepage
Produced by Ex machina/Théâtre sans Frontières
In association with Cultural Industry and Northern Stage
Co-produced by barbicanbite08, Cabildo Insular de Tenerife and Festival TransAmèriques, Montrèal

Formed in 1994, Ex Machina is a grouping of creators, performing artists and technicians under the artistic direction of celebrated international director Robert Lepage.

Ex Machina was last seen at bite in 2006 with The Andersen Project , which received unanimous acclaim from audiences and critics alike. This followed the successes of The Dragon’s Trilogy (bite05) and the far side of the moon (bite03).

Reviews

‘Almost overwhelming genius… you don’t watch a Lepage epic, it happens to you.’ Gazette, Canada

‘Seamlessly spell-binding.’ The Independent on The Andersen Project
