Article
Robert Lepage’s Scenographic Dramaturgy examines how Lepage’s adaptation of canonical performance texts, through a highly visual and imaginative use of theatre space, functions as a new concept of “scenographic dramaturgy.” This book reframes notions of devising performance in spatial terms, includes rarely discussed works, and provides a valuable...

Article
A teatralidade de Lepage funciona na associação entre imagens gravadas e ao vivo. Trata-se de uma comunicação entre atores e toda a tecnologia trazida ao espaço, onde, segundo Johannes Barringer, “percepções espaciais são feitas através do que é inserido fisicamente no espaço”5. A tecnologia também está, conforme observa Alison Oddey, contribuindo...

His work came to the Balkans at the end of the nineteenth century, translated and adapted from the German, as part of the European-wide Romantic Movement. The plays have been part of a growing national consciousness that a...

Juliette at Zulu Time looks at how Robert Lepage's theatre communicates through form that is content, exploring the medium until he discovers something that has an echo in the audience. It also explores how changes in the social context politicize reception of the performance. The article analyses the use of multimedia in two of Robert Lepage's pro...
Book
The Cinema of Robert Lepage is the first critical study of one of the most striking artists of Quebecois and Canadian independent filmmaking.
