The Seven Streams of the River Ota

Audio described in-house.

An Ex Machina production, by Ex Machina / Robert Lepage

‘Of all Lepage’s magic boxes, this is the masterpiece.’
Independent on Sunday

First staged at the National Theatre in 1996, Robert Lepage’s masterpiece returns to London for just nine performances. Presented as part of a world tour, this new staging marks 75 years since the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima.

Tracing survivors and their descendants across five decades, this giant theatrical journey through time and space explores the way in which a few kilograms of uranium falling on Japan changed the course of human history.

‘Lepage’s shows have dazzled a global audience. His profound theatrical experiences explore history and the tiny humans swept up within it.’
