TRIP­TYCH

NOW Magazine - TIFF - - FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW -

Robert Lepage’s nine-hour opus Lip­synch was one of the ma­jor the­atre events of the decade: a time-trav­el­ling, con­ti­nent-hop­ping epic. Con­sid­er­ing that the run­ning time of this ver­sion is a mere 90 min­utes, and the fact that so much of the power of the play had to do with the econ­omy of the stage­craft (and the ac­tors play­ing mul­ti­ple roles), I don’t know how he’s go­ing to adapt it to the more re­al­is­tic medium of film. But I’ll be there. Septem­ber 6, 9 pm, TIFF Bell Light­box 2; Septem­ber 9, 3: 45 pm, Sco­tia­bank 11
