The Dramaticon is the story of a disturbing mermaid on the decline; a rotten egg so narcissistic that it does not notice the worms that are eating it from the inside out; a pirate bird and a bipolar satin bear; a rudimentary monkey and a boy whose body is covered in waves. It is an opera in English, imagined and written by the plastic artist Guillaume Pilet. A freeform meditation by the artist on the subject of his life, tinged with humour and poetry, that asks metaphysical questions: How do our dead accompany us, how do our memories haunt us? How do we, the living, struggle with our passions?
