WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An 8 1/2-hour performance that spans 70 years and explores the voice as a compelling metaphor for human expression and interaction, the action journeys from war-torn Vienna and pre-revolutionary Nicaragua to contemporary London. Conjuring a panorama that connects nine lives through many decades, Lipsynch tracks a cluster of interwoven destinies where each voice searches for its own identity--from the precision of the dubbing studio to the world of voice forensics in criminal investigations. The narrative, co-authored by Lepage, Marie 9 Gignac and the nine cast members, is structured in nine units--each focusing on a character from overlapping plots, ultimately connected in a moving climax. Lipsynch may be seen in its entirety during weekend marathons on Oct 3, 4, 10, or 11 (with on-site meals available for purchase in advance). The production's three parts may also be seen on separate weeknights (Oct 6, 7, and 8).
