LEPAGE AU SOLEIL: AT THE ORIGINS OF KANATA in Theaters Today
LEPAGE AU SOLEIL: AT THE ORIGINS OF KANATA, the latest documentary by Hélène Choquette, is released today.
In the spring of 2016, for the first time in 54 years, Ariane Mnouchkine entrusts her troupe, the Théâtre du Soleil, to another director. Robert Lepage then embarks on the creation of Kanata, a work that imagines the meeting of Europeans with First Nations people of Canada over a period of two centuries. After more than two years of work, the rumour of a show about First Nations people without their direct involvement sparks debates in the Canadian media, and soon in Europe and the United States. Its creators are accused of cultural appropriation while no one has seen the show.
