1 Review
An intimate and probing meditation on theatre, the attributes of imperfect memory, the roots of inspiration, and the culture of our time, from the Canadian theatrical magician Robert Lepage. Lepage is the actor, director, and creator behind some of the most imaginative theatre productions, including ethereal ruminations on Hiroshima in The Seven Streams of the River Ota, and on the destructive addictions behind Jean Cocteau and Miles Davis in Needles and Opium. His talents stretch from starring in one man shows to designing gigantic rock concerts for Peter Gabriel.

Flights takes the readers through a wide spectrum of topics, including Lepage's concern with nationalism keeping a country's culture from traveling beyond its borders for all the world to see.
