Conception, choreography and set design

Théo Mercier & Steven Michel

En tournée
Création 2018
Show created May 3rd 2018 in Bonlieu, scène nationale Annecy, France

In Affordable Solution for Better Living, visual artist Théo Mercier and choreographer Steven Michel place a Kallax – a most peculiar totem – in the middle of a spotless space. The flagship shelf unit by the giant company Ikea epitomizes “beauty for all” and the democratization of design. In three acts, the show debunks the model and unfurls the convictions and doubts of a nearly perfect and polished man. A centaur, half man and half furniture, absurdly builds his own customized interior, unique and yet like all the others.
