Superamas, Theater of Operations Conversation with Julien Bécourt

by Julien Bécourt

A veil of mystery still surrounds the circumstances of Mouammar Kadhafi’s death, as he was tracked down like a wild animal after the seizure of Tripoli in 2011. A summary execution by the NTC (National Transitional Council) soldiers or a remote-controlled murder orchestrated by the French secret services? Working with this recent piece of history, the Superamas collective is creating a new stage device that gathers together Alexis Poulin, a renowned political journalist, and a former DGSE (in French, General Directorate for External Security) agent. In this casual conversation, revelations unfold outside of the media framework, onto the theater stage, where masks drop and history is rewritten before our eyes.
