Who hasn’t ever dreamed of dropping out of their life, hitting the reset button, and starting over? Each night, on the spot, a single spectator is chosen to become the only actor in that evening’s show. This individual then plunges into a stage environment designed to unlock the universal mechanisms of the imagination, while exploring the question: are we creatures of free will, or prisoners of our social conditioning? Meanwhile, the rest of the audience gets to observe human behavior from a very unusual perspective.
Ce qu’on attend de moi offers one spectator a temporary escape from their reality… creating a hybrid work that is neither purely film nor theatre. The audience as a whole, gathered under an open-air canopy, experiences a unique artistic performance that is different every single night.
