Ainsi sois moi is a play for six performers, and the collective extension of Transfiguration, a performance in which the idea is to use one’s own head as a base to sculpt other faces on it with the help of clay, in the hope of digging out from one’s
depth his real identity and finally make it visible. Olivier de Sagazan is a painter, a sculptor and a performer who wonders about the real nature of a man. By transforming the faces he builds up a sort of fantastic laboratory where everyone passes in turn from Frankenstein to his creature. He uses here his favourite topics: birth, race, reproduction, death. He wonders over and over again about morphogenesis and one’s
identity, about the puppet in the flesh and the puppeteer who says «I», about the sensitive body and the future corpse.
