VISION live cinema
Since his youth, Pierre Megos has been bathing in a Hollywood dream. According to him, the capital of the cinema should appear on his birth certificate instead of Brussels. Taking this as his point of departure, he decides to stage the feeling to be " really here" but "over there in dream " by relocating Hollywood to the theater.
In Vision, Pierre Megos becomes the Oracle of modern times by offering to the spectators a real film anthology mixing codes, references and genres of Hollywood cinema. He proposes us a fantasized future, a dreamlike and critical conception of what mankind could be confronted with in a near future.
In this show, modern and ancients myths question different themes as the power, the oppression, the freedom, the transmission, but also the act of creation that art involve in the journey of an artist.
Pierre Megos uses the technique of the chroma key by staging himself in the role of Mister John, an average person destined to live extraordinary adventures. This lost character will evolve in a futuristic underground world populated by creatures of conditioned minds devoted to destruction. Only the chosen one can change everything... But what can a common person in an unreal world really do?
The spectators enters a universe where theater is confronted with cinema and reality with imagination - all this is supported by an unseen stage design which allows them to watch simultaneously a movie and its making.
