Lepage au Soleil: à l’origine de Kanata
In the spring of 2016, for the first time in 54 years, Ariane Mnouchkine entrusted her troupe, the Théâtre du Soleil, to another director. Robert Lepage went on to create Kanata, a play that focuses on the interaction of Europeans with the indigenous peoples of Canada in the course of two centuries. Lepage and the actors were working on the performance for two years. Before it even premiered, Kanata came under fire as rumours began to spread, initially in the Canadian media and later in Europe and the United States, that the show’s creators hadn’t directly consulted with the Aboriginal Canadians.
