WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Andersen Project is freely inspired by Andersen's timeless fable, The Dryad and draws from the Danish author's visit to France during the Paris World's Fair. The production questions sexual identity, unfulfilled fantasies and the thirst for recognition and fame that are taken from Andersen's own life and writings. In what has become a hallmark of his dazzling solo projects, Lepage weaves the story of a Québécois artist whose travels and chance encounters take him on a voyage of understanding and self-discovery. In this new work, Lepage assumes the role of a distracted young writer, in Paris at the invitation of the Opera Garnier, commissioned to create the libretto for a children's opera based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.
