Neon lights, plastic cups, a few crisps… a makeshift party organised by a young man who invites the audience to celebrate his graduation from high school for a second time. Why? To help him overcome the trauma he experienced first time around and create new memories that will wipe out the old. As the audience gradually enters into the spirit, the mood starts to take a turn. With subtle humour and great dexterity, the young artist from Fribourg weaves in recognisable narratives from film and theatre into his performance, which earned him the Swiss Performance Award in 2015.
