They Parlaient Idéale reflects on what it means to be a citizen of a nation, especially when one’s identity is rather ambiguous. A cross-generational and interracial cast of performers embark on a road trip from Grigny, a suburb of Paris, to the French pavilion at the Venice Biennial. Edited in Prouvost’s signature feverish style, she seizes the viewer’s attention by her singular use of wordplay and cheeky political commentary.
