Superamas (FR/AT)



a documentary show by Superamas

Actress Pauline Paolini recounts the tragic story of her twin sister Emmanuelle in a live interview conducted by the Superamas art collective. From the diagnosis of her illness, to the interruption of her treatment, via the harmful influence of Dr Kurtz, her testimony highlights the dangers of alternative medicine when it flirts with manipulation, or even sectarian tendencies.

Conceived as a documentary show at the heart of the conspiracy theory phenomenon, Bunker starts from the story of a dramatic personal experience, to open up to a wider reflection on contemporary credulity and the dangers it poses to our democratic societies.

The residency

During the residency the team will be in research and rehearsals. Voice recordings will also take place at the end of the second week.
