Le Projet Riopelle

Venue: Theatre Jean Duceppe

Dates: April 25 to June 11

In the fall of 1992, Jean-Paul Riopelle painted the monumental work L’Hommage à Rosa Luxemburg in his studio on L’Île-aux-Oies. The painting was considered his artistic testament and a tribute to his great love, Joan Mitchell, as he worked furiously on it for weeks. In a spectacular show, Robert Lepage pays homage to Riopelle, whom he considers the father of modern art in Quebec, by pushing the limits of stagecraft and inviting the audience to discover or rediscover this imposing artist. Through Riopelle’s life story, the show celebrates the Quebecois people – their defiance, their northern heritage, and their thirst for freedom – and magnifies the foundations of modern Quebecois identity.
