The Limitless Vision of Robert Lepage
The idea of belonging has been a lifelong obsession for Robert Lepage. The world-renowned stage director and actor grew up in a family that was half-French, half-English. He was taunted as a child for the way he looked. And in his plays, he reflects and refracts his own biography through his characters. In the 2014 Lafontaine-Baldwin Symposium lecture and in conversation with IDEAS host Paul Kennedy, Robert Lepage explores the pathways, and roadblocks, to belonging.
