Join us for Needles and Opium, written and directed by Robert Lepage, one of Canada's most renowned figures in performing arts. This play will be presented by Canadian Stage at the St. Lawrence Centre.
There will be a pre-show talk.
Robert Lepage creates a new production of his acclaimed Needles and Opium. Presented as a hypnotic series of vignettes, this fascinating, introspective show explores the complex relationships between displacement, drug addiction and the creative drive, as revealed through the lives of Parisian poet/filmmaker Jean Cocteau on his way to New York, and American jazz legend Miles Davis during his stay in Paris in 1949. The most startling technical wizardry at the service of a true emotional journey. An Ex Machina production presented by Canadian Stage. More information.
