Luxembourg I In English and other languages
During the week of the festival, director Anne Simon will be working with a group of young adults from most varied cultural and social backgrounds. The devised work will explore autobiographical performance.
Each candidate will be presented through incarnation of his or her self by one of the other participants. The process of sharing, analysing almost empirically and then re-incarnating opens a possibility of formal and artificial onlooking, cleansing abstraction presumably leading to unwilling comedy and the harsh truth, that we very often hide, when presenting ourselves.
Alter Ego takes place in the form of spontaneous encounters with each candidate and a restricted audience throughout the evening.
