Superamas News

Superamas initiates a new creation, provisionally entitled The man who shot Muammar Gaddafi. For the first time on a theater stage, a former member of the DGSE, the French intelligence service, agrees to unveil the hidden reality of his profession. Far from the stereotypes conveyed by fiction, he reveals the methods and techniques used by the secret services by illustrating them with concrete cases.

SUPERAMAS met this man -who wishes to remain anonymous- for the first time in 2013. If he resolves to testify today, it is because he is the object of pressure, if not of threats, in the context of the investigation into the Libyan financing of Nicolas Sarkozy's presidential campaign...   MORE

2018
CHEKHOV
Fast & Furious

For six months Superamas worked with four youth groups in Amiens, Maubeuge, Reykjavik and Vienna. Starting from Chekhov's famous play “Uncle Vania”, young people were led to reflect and react on issues as diverse and personal as: What does it mean to succeed in life? What is happiness? What is sadness? What are the things you regret? What is love? Young people have seized these themes to express their doubts, anger and hopes at the beginning of the 21st century.

SUPERAMAS, on the other hand, has been impertinently and ironically focused on re-contextualising some of the situations taken from Uncle Vania that portray the aging members of the artistic collective... MORE

Superamas Press

(lastest reactions)

PRESS KIT 2006-2018 (excerpts)

"...Superamas manages here to pack personal stories of the young performers into 4 acts according Chekhov´s play which are loosely connected to the events at Uncle Vanja´s country side estate. Several wastelands in which the youth is dancing nowadays are made visible without the piece becoming a tearjerker. Chekhov – Fast & Furious appeals by its bite, a sophisticated dramaturgy and the tortuous performance of the adult world by the members of Superamas..."

Helmut Ploebst

Der Standard (AT)

"...Eine provokante und brilliante Arbeit..."

Helmut Ploebst

Der Standard (AT)

"...Keine Frage, das Performancekollektiv Superamas zählt zu den Trendsettern der Performanceszene…Vive l´Armée! stellt die Frage nach dem Krieg gegen die Demokratie sehr eindringlich..."

Silvia Kargl

Kurier (AT)

"...Retournant comme une chaussette le discours des grandes puissances, l'art de la guerre des Superamas tient du situationnisme en détournant scénarios de films et paroles médiatiques pour dénoncer une politique spectacle qui emballe sa violence dans le papier de soie de ses bons sentiments..."

Patrick Sourd

Les Inrockuptibles (FR)
