The anticipation is finally over! The OPÉRA-ROCK by the spectral figure Böse Wicht—the evil double of the artist Philippe Wicht—is coming to Arsenic. As the big boss of an obscure firm, Böse Wicht invites us into his phantom zone in order to expunge the “business” of an era exclusively attached to former successes. Fear of failure, a reality ever more disembodied from its materiality, the pressure to be original… How can we reconcile morality and politics so that the idea of success is based upon true self-realisation? By transfiguring music video and fashion culture into a dark and mystical experience, Philippe Wicht celebrates the citizens of tomorrow, their bodies and their freedoms, through dance and song.
