This solo show by Robert Lepage is a meditation on the conquest of the moon. However, The Far Side of the Moon focuses with humor on the relationship between two brothers, Philippe and his younger brother André, who grew up against the backdrop of the US-Soviet space race. → in partnership with Théâtre de la Ville → A Quebec at La Villette event


The Far Side of the Moon focuses on the conflict between two brothers who are trying to come to grips with the death of their mother. It also concerns Russian cosmonaut Leonov, who is confronted with the immensity of interplanetary space as he took his first step out of the Voskhod 2 spacecraft. Robert Lepage plays not only the two brothers, but their mother, Alexei Leonov, an American astronaut and Philippe’s doctor.

With a little imagination, the door to a washing machine becomes the hatch of a space capsule, a CAT-scan machine, the womb, an airplane window or a goldfish bowl. But live videos, projections and documentary films about the space race also serve as interludes between scenes. Through his spellbinding words, French-Canadian Robert Lepage brings us at the heart of his cheeky tenderness and curiosity.
