Description "Lipsynch is structured in nine units, each of which concentrates on a figure from the floating gallery of characters who populate a series of overlapping plots, building to an exquisitely moving and unexpected climax. As so often in Lepage's work, the protagonists find themselves adrift in the world and, as we follow their journeys, we become deeply involved in their search for identity. The production moves from war-torn Vienna to pre-revolutionary Nicaragua and contemporary London, encountering those who have lost the power of speech or are tangled in linguistic confusion."
