The Far Side of the Moon

Ex Machina / Robert Lepage

Auckland Arts Festival

Pure theatrical magic from a visionary director.

To see a show from Canada's visionary director Robert Lepage is to experience pure theatrical magic.

His smash hit The Far Side of the Moon is a spellbinding, funny and technically exquisite exploration of both inner and outer space performed as a one-man show. 

Publicly the race to the moon is consuming Americans and Russians, while privately two estranged brothers are brought together by their mother's death. Phillipe is a shy philosopher struggling with his thesis about the effect of space travel on popular culture. Andre is a successful TV weatherman and extrovert, who sees the galaxy's mysteries more pragmatically.
