What is our identity made up of? Our appearance? Our work? Our success? And what if we lose one of those things… who are you then?
SUPERLATIVE explores a personal history: performer Kiyan Khoshoie became famous from a tv talent show as a child. His development from child-star to performer, obsessed and possessed by his audience, results in hilarious, but also touching moments, and reveals his true nature: raw and vulnerable.
Locked in a white box on stage, talking to mysterious video projections, Khoshoie looks back and ahead. A merciless solo, that takes place on the verge of an identity crisis, allows the audience to dive deep into his psyche.
Director Cecilia Moisio opens a choreographic space in which two parallels meet each other: self-reflection and identity. What is losing your identity like? And what are we really afraid of?
