The Théâtre du Trillium invites you to a "sightseeing tour" with an ironic look of the digital art world, portraying the escapades of a specimen of this "unique" genre. Inspired by the figure of the famous artist Jeff Koons, used here as a starting point for a theatrical attempt that is a new look at the "pop thing".  As in the work of the American artist, we find the themes of sexuality, the nostalgia of childhood and the dream of a perfect world. Jeff Koons is a digital stage proposal by Franco-Ontarian director Dillon Orr.

Creative Process

The Jeff Koons project stands in opposition to critics of new technologies who continue to claim that each innovation takes us further away from our true nature and humanity. And if it was this new technology that could shed new light on our practice? To innovate, communicate a vision of a new world, a new way of understanding it, undertaking it and living it.
