Le duplicateur

— May 2024

Opus : 69 / Type d'œuvre : Pour voix et instrument(s)

“The Duplicator tells the story of the privatisation of living beings by large multinationals. A sprawling company called “Monsanton” has granted itself a monopoly on cloning, going so far as to dispossess human beings of their most precious possession: their bodies, and the very thing that gives meaning to their lives: their death.

In this world dominated by Monsanton, each person, if they die, is immediately duplicated, with their memory, their memories and their personality… provided, of course, that they pay (more and more dearly) for this service…”. Benoît Richter
