If you don’t think you are the best actor, stop acting. If you don’t think you are making the best show, don’t make it. If you don’t think you can be selected for the programme, don’t apply. Hero 2.0 talks exactly about this, it’s not a question of faith but complete and blind conviction, that Hero 2.0 IS the Show of all Shows.
All they have left on the way to triumph, are themselves, shoulder to shoulder. Void, light and two actors. Heroes. Both are lead heroes. Both fight for their place in front of the audience, by all means. Uncompromisingly, over any obstacle to a superb creation, a masterpiece.
Hero 2.0’s main theme is ambition. We talk about it through problematizing theatre. How we make it, how we perceive it, how we perform it. Its metatheatricality is honest and inclusive. The two performers do everything by themselves. Their genuine and humorous modus operandi becomes their theatrical modus vivendi.
Two naked actors, stripped of everything but their desire to achieve the Show of all shows.
