887 Murray Avenue, Quebec City, Canada. The apartment complex where renowned director Robert Lepage (The Blue Dragon, 2013 Next Wave) spent his youth comes to life as a bewitching, tech-saturated dollhouse in this deeply personal solo work. Populated with miniature neighbors and family members, and the many stories embedded in rooms, walls, and windows, 887 constructs an evocative memory palace. As Lepage revisits his childhood home and other brilliantly reconfigured spaces from his past and present—among them his current Quebec City flat and the front seat of his father’s taxi—he unearths a life’s worth of memories, sifting in the process through the things we can’t seem to recall and those we aren’t able to forget. —BAM
