“Ditching the Plan and Embracing Imperfection”

There is no easy way to summarize the contribution Quebec-born Robert Lepagehas made to the arts, and no single art to tie him to either. He is not only considered a genius in the field of theatre, but also a creative force in film, opera and Quebec’s signature Cirque du Soleil shows. The actor and director has earned a reputation for pushing boundaries and conjuring up complex visual effects. His one constant muse appears to be innovation itself.

Some Takeaways:

  • A thirst to innovate, an appreciation for the Renaissance, Shakespeare and Moliere
  • Unafraid of chaos in the creative process and humble enough to say I don’t know everything…
  • The real promise of real theatre – a community meeting a community. Bad theater is when what happens onstage never makes it into the room- i.e. Never really connecting with the audience

“It always arrives where it belongs in the end”
