History meets personal history for Robert Lepage

thestar.com – By Richard Ouzounian – Theatre Critic

Every show that Robert Lepage creates is ultimately about one thing – Robert Lepage – and Eonnagata, which opens Nov. 18 at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, is no exception.

This is not to imply that Lepage isn’t a fit or varied enough subject to command our attention. Far from it. He’s one of the most original minds operating in the world today and the way he takes his personal concerns and changes them, through his own unique alchemy, into the stuff of high art, is nothing short of amazing.
