A fabulous soap opera that flirts with both the saga of our planet and the ideas of physicist Stephen Hawking, Lipsynchproposes a series of alternate destinies, of superimposed lives and voices, in fact nothing less than an inventory of the world with its absences and its black holes, seen through the ups and downs of men and women brought together by chance and probability. Nine stories are linked together, the rules of chronology are abolished and microfictions bump into each other like marbles in a pinball machine activated by the conjurer Lepage.
After Les Sept Branches de la rivière Ota and many other monumental works, he takes us by boat, train, jet, subway and car to the confluence where several rivers meet, to the delta where the alluvial deposits of grief-stricken memory lie. A dramatic and farcical work, at the heart of this symphony each story and each character is introduced like an instrument with its own special music and tonality. Lipsynch is a huge Meccano set that takes theatre to the summit of its narrative possibilities, a shimmering, multi-sided Rubik’s cube that suggests that something new might suddenly appear.
