2021 - 44 minutes
The Drama More Show (Pilot) was produced as part of "La vie bonne", a project supported by AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques.
Drama More welcomes us to the set of The Drama More Show, a bingo game. Sixteen numbers are drawn at random using a loto ball machine. Each ball announces a guest invited to present their number providing infinite answers to the subliminal question "What is a good life?"
In this programme, Drama More takes on the roles of presenter, actress and performer. Dressed as a parrot - an animal that carries the voices of others - she collects in her beak stories of her guests : sculptures, objects, friends and her dog whom she welcomes on the sofa.
Numbers include a presentation on political lesbian practices by a ceramic bandage, an interview with a soft sculpture on the history of sculpture, a ventriloquism act and a make-up tutorial to gain better vision.
In special numbers, The Drama More Show welcomes Lucy Ricardo from the sitcom I Love Lucy, singer gladys garcia and Jessica, witness of a dance by Simon Asencio.
