Robert Lepage’s 887
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
149 W. Hastings Street
On the occasion of SFU’s 50th Anniversary, SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs, in partnership with Théâtre la Seizième, present 887, a new creation by Robert Lepage and Ex Machina
887 is a journey into the realm of memory. The idea for this project originated from the childhood memories of Robert Lepage; years later, he plunges into the depths of his memory and questions the relevance of certain recollections. Why do we remember the phone number from our youth yet forget our current one? How does a childhood song withstand the test of time, permanently ingrained in our minds, while the name of a loved one escapes us? Why does meaningless information stick with us, but other more useful information falls away?
