The Far Side of the Moon

Preface written by André Brassard

The Far Side of the Moon relates in parallel the tensed relationship between two brothers following their mother’s recent death and the Americans’ and Soviets’ intense race to conquer space.

This solo piece was created by Robert Lepage in March 2000 and was adapted for the big screen in 2003.

Images from the original version, the revival with Yves Jacques and from the movie punctuates the book.

Available in bookstores in Quebec and at La Librairie du Québec in Paris. Only available in French for now.

The Andersen Project Book

The Andersen Project

Preface written by Lars Seeberg, General Secretary of the H. C. Andersen Foundation. Comes with a DVD.


Inspired by two of Andersen’s tales as well as episodes of the famous author’s life, Lepage explores the turbid territories of sexual identity, of unfulfilled fantasies and of the author’s thirst for recognition that runs through his life and works.

The book comes with a wonderful DVD which reveals parts of the creation process of the play, extracts and scenes that were not used in the final version. Robert Lepage, among other things, elaborates on how the piece needs to adapt to foreign languages.

Available in bookstores in Quebec and in Europe, Novembre 2007. Only available in French for now.
