In Performance: Bettina Atala (Paris) at Chez Bushwick (NYC)

Bettina Atala
Season 1 Episode 2
20th february 8PM


Where is the cameraman standing ?
At what moment the shot will change ?
How many takes were required before getting a result ?

These are the questions that the characters in the movie Season 1 episode 2 openly ask themselves and which are the main subject of the dialogues.

Part film, part theater, part reality television… Bettina Atala’s Season 1 episode 2 examines its own production process step by step, as it is being created in front of the audience. The hilarious and thoughtful work questions the concepts of mass media, Big Brother, and the boundaries of reality and fiction – while offering a delightful critique of social norms and structures.

Known to New York audiences for her work with French performance group GRAND MAGASIN, Bettina Atala will propose a very special NYC version of Season 1 episode 2.
