Le Dragon Bleu
Robert Lepage's new performance piece, "Le Dragon Bleu" couldn't have been more visually stunning then it was. Every minute detail was thought out, from sets, to make-up to costuming to lighting. It has a very poetic grace about it.
The story is the last in a trilogy about the Asian community that migrated to Canada (where Lepage is from) - and how ethnic lines are blurred, and national allegiances dulled. Old and new cultures blend, a baby is born that is now half Asian/Half Canadian.
I felt privileged to experience something as beautiful as this; someone else's vision...
