My place in society does not allow me to play Russian roulette, to open a casino, to carry on a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton, to dress myself out of a fashion magazine, to wear sneakers Made in China. My place in society requires me to barely lift a finger, to spy on my concierge, to wait for the bus, to reread the rules which govern my access to the penal code, to put my socks on right side out, to carry on a normal conversation, to correctly spell the following words: ? WARNING, DON?T MOVE, YOU?RE ON CAMERA? (tonelessly), to open a bank account, to climb the walls, to smoke and drink to excess. I?m a folk tale hero. 340,000 copies sold every year. I hold the department store sales record for 40 years. To answer to the question: What color is Henry IV?s white horse? Question... Answer...

During the festival multimedia « Arborescence », the audience was wandering around a labyrinth of interactive works, concerts and video screenings. If we took the risk to look up, we could catch sight of a handful of Snow Whites armed with kalachnikoffs, wandering about the passageways and the roofs of the Beaux-Arts school. Why were they there? Was it for making sure that everything went well and to protect the public against a possible attack? Or, did their presence show their willingness to dominate and control the audience.
