Welcome to our model unit! Two realty representatives, the best you have ever met, are inviting you to a showing in the Diorama complex, a housing complex designed to meet absolutely all of your needs. Between projection and reality, between couple relationship and work relationship, these two present an ideal life, the life you are bound to be dreaming of. But the beautiful counters are not that sturdy, the love story not so perfect and tonight, the meticulously planned choreography, repeated hundreds of times before, is disrupted by some anomalies

Unité Modèle is a parody of the real estate market and everything superficial it wants to sell you. At once fanciful, well-paced and caustic, it’s a stage object that is trying too hard, like these representatives whose beyond-perfect smiles are not quite real.
