Mon, Ma, Mes (Revisité) examines the permeability between the real and the fictive, utilizing performative constructs to deconstruct where, how, and why we make personas for ourselves. Originally created in 2012 for FIAF’s Crossing the Line Festival (hence “Revisité”), this stylized lecture-performance has been built to grow, adapt, and change alongside Ferver’s concerns and larger creations, creating a humorous and disarming retrospective of his life and work. Through sudden shifts in style and form, blurred boundaries emerge between the realms of grand theatrics and stark naturalism, the persona and the self.

Mon, Ma, Mes was originally commissioned by the French Institute Alliance Française for the Crossing The Line Festival in 2012.
