It’s all beginning on a TV show, and then goes dismantling: Michael Forester, an Olympic athlete and a star, is invited to promote a documentary about his own life, I am fabulous. In this world of images, guest after guest, avatars are multiplying, preventing us from distinguishing reality and fiction. The whole thing twirls into a vortex where the ideas of “models” and individual personality are floating by: who are we, who can we be, and who do we want to be? Three characters are writing the destiny of common people with sometimes ordinary, sometimes extraordinary ideas, solutions, energies.

About the artists
Le Dahu Company works on creations mixing different stage materials – photos, videos, sounds, dance texts – to question contemporary subjects. It is meant to study, in an artistic laboratory, how social standardizations, personalities, opinions beliefs are operating. And finally to ask a simple question: what can we change, and do we really want to change?
