WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Director and writer Robert Lepage's The Andersen Project 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, performed by Yves Jacques, 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. 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.
