Sid is the future. Handsome, charming, intelligent, European by
birth, and Algerian by heritage, he belongs neither to the West nor
to the Maghreb. He is the future. A future without identity.
A present without a future. The world is his stage, life is his movie.
His white designer outfits glow. Sid packs discarded lives, wrap-
ping them in designer envelopes. The serial killer of the future.
He killed. Probably out of boredom. Definitely for a higher purpose. He kills by suffocating his victims in fashionable plastic bags. His story, is a film 'without editing', a torrential monologue that is a Hip Hop concert played live: splinters of life, of bullying, of consumption, of bored kids, of 'fuck you', of reeds, drugs, desolation, of wandering in the 'temples of consumption'.
The performance is followed by a talk with Livio Beshir and Alberto Malanchino.
