Robert Lepage is one of the international theatre world's leading figures. This documentary shows this brilliant artist at work. In a revealing interview, Lepage discusses how he works with actors and other members of his troupe. In addition, actors rehearsing one of Lepage's creations, The Seven Streams of the River Ota, share their impressions of how their own work has evolved with the playwright. Throughout, Lepage's plays - Vinci, The Dragons' Trilogy, The Seven Streams of the River Ota and Needles and Opium - as well as his two films - The Confessional and The Polygraph - serve to both illustrate and complement the interviews. 1997, subtitled in English.
