Le Projet Andersen

Le Projet Andersen Book

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. Only available in French for now.
