TRIGGER 2021: Hero 2.0 – The Show of All Shows

The entrance fee is 5 euros. Tickets will be available at the venue one hour before the event.


Only victory matters. History remembers only those who are on top.

Everything they have left on the way to triumph is themselves, shoulder by shoulder. The void, light and two actors. Heroes. Both are leading men. Both fight for their place in front of the audience, by any means available. Uncompromisingly, over any obstacle, to a superb creation, a masterpiece. If you don’t consider yourself to be 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 a matter of complete and blind conviction that Hero 2.0 IS The Show of All Shows.

Performance is part of TRIGGER platform for contemporary performing arts.
