 The structure of 887, a theatrical performance directed by Robert Lepage, makes the audience experience personal and collective memory through a monologue. Lepage's direction technique positions fragments of memories together into the memory space so that a local identity as Québécois is constructed in the audience's memory. This paper purposes to discuss how the narrative of 887 presents collective memory and how such communal recollections are associated with the construction of the Québécois identity for Lepage, who is also the narrator of the dramatic monologue. According to Halbwachs, the key to constructing collective memory is to place every episode of a contemporary flow of time within a single memory. This paper reflects on Lepage's theatrical approach vis-à-vis memory and francophones in the 1960s and 1970s, and thus elucidates the multiple times the audiences of 887 are made to recollect this phenomena.
