The hero embodies the excessiveness of human hope, the belief in our potential to reconcile with the clumsiness of the human condition. A figure that changes, expands, shifts or constrains the relation of the body to daily life.

The hero never gives up, and doesn’t have any other way than being his own character. He goes on a frantic race, above and beyond, having to endorse the roles of man and hero, alone in this absurd, dramatic and fantastic adventure.
